lyrics

Piper wanders down the road
Piper stops at a window box
Pretty flowers in a row
Summer, fall, then the driving snow

While you’re sleeping
Dearest boy
Can you ever think of me?
Now the morning
Tries to remind me
That this was meant to be
C’est La vie.

Piper walks into a church
Piper stares at the sacristy
How many sons will have to die
Before he’s put out of his misery

In your absence
Specters loom
And they still consume my nights
When the morning
Tries to find me
I’ve vanished from its sight
Such is life.

While you’re sleeping
Dearest boy
Can you ever think of me?
Now the morning
Tries to remind me
That this was meant to be
C’est La vie.
