Your empty-handed armies are going home.
Your lover who has just walked out your door
Has taken all his blankets off the floor.

The carpet too is moving under you,
And it's all over now Baby Blue.

Leave your stepping stones behind, there's something calls for you
Forget about the dead you've left, they will not follow you
The vagabond who's rapping at your door
Is standing in the clothes you once wore.

Strike another match, go start anew,
And it's all over now Baby Blue [Repeat: x3]
