The guitar sits by the window
all broken and alone
the guitar sits by the window
and I know that he is home
He sets it by the window
when he wishes to forget
he sets it by the window
when he hasn't made it yet
I worry when he wanders
Far out across the world
but to his home returns now
broken forever more
His words are dim and broken
his song forever lost
the child I knew is gone now
and I tremble at its loss
