Dragonfly in Amber - Diana Gabaldon

(To the tune of "If You're Gone" by Matchbox Twenty)

 

I fear I've lost you forever
Now that I'm safe from the storm.
I think I'll never get back there
Back to your arms, where it was warm.

 

I think you've already left me
Feels like you never were born.
I thought I knew who I was then
You taught me a new love; now I'm forlorn.

 

But I think it's a curse, I think it's a dream

I think things are never quite as they seem.
And now thaf I'm lost, can't find my way home

They think I've gone mad; the truth is I'm reeling.
 

If you're gone, help me to live on my own

There's a new life to live for, but I can hardly cope.
If you're not here, help me to live on my own

'Cause the darkness may just swallow me if you don't offer hope.

 

I know I'll never get over

The way we parted that night.

I couldn't bid you farewell, love
You are my truth; you are my light.

 

But I think it's a curse, I think it's a dream

i think things are never quite as they seem.

And now that I'm lost, can't find my way home

They think I've gone mad; the truth is I'm reeling.

 

If you're gone, help me to live on my own

There's a new life to live for, but I can hardly cope.
If you're not here, help me to live on my own

'Cause the darkness may just swallow me if you don't offer hope.
