By the river, we once sat abreast
Singing along to our favourite songs
I now sit alone with an empty chest
Amidst a hundred billabongs

My heart now pumping out tears
My eyes now crying out blood
You stole my heart, my dear
And left it drowning in the mud

Now craving your love once more
I’m seated at the river bank once again
Reminiscing about the vows you swore
When we promised to marry in the rain

Holding a mirror and in need of relief
I look to find the beauty you once praised
In wrinkles like a tree’s torn-off leaf
If only your departure had been delayed
Then I wouldn’t be consorting with such grief
Letting you go was the worst mistake ever made
