gone away lyrics – binocular

step outside and take the cold in like a pill
then i wake up and dream it was a dream i dreamt
that old house stuck up on a hill somewhere
makes me cry out loud and wipe away the tears again

how do i know you ain’t gone away?
how do i know you ain’t gone away?
heaven’s on your doorstep and you ain’t gone away
they make up lies, tell you things and you ain’t gone away

in the morning mist i call out your name
but i don’t hear it echo the voice of the insane
all the memories on your window sill they keep a sweet refrain
if all that’s good is an accident i’m not the one to blame

how do i know you ain’t gone away?
how do i know you ain’t gone away?
heaven’s on your doorstep and you ain’t gone away
and knowing all the answers won’t take away the pain

you can see the reasoning the truth of the insane
they make up lies, tell you things and you ain’t gone away
starstruck the letters on your mantelpiece
read like death in venice on the beach

you ain’t gone away
(you ain’t gone away)
how do i know you ain’t gone away?
heaven’s on your doorstep you ain’t gone away

knowing all the answers won’t take away the pain
you can see the reasoning the truth of the insane
they make up lies, tell you things and you ain’t gone away
you ain’t gone away

(’cause you ain’t gone away)
you ain’t gone away
(you ain’t gone away, you ain’t gone away)
you ain’t gone away
