No News is Bad News
So that's the way it will be, I fear
Obliged to see the Circle in the way not just you see
Resigned to the hand fate has dealt me
That only in a future lifetime will you ever reappear
And no news is bad news, now the gulf of time's so broad
No gentle letters of love remain, no methods left to use
And time inflicts the wound, not heals
When you're hoping but ignored
And no news is bad news, however self-assured... you are.
So that's what self-belief was good for! So clear
Back then my life's direction satisfied me
Though I was poor
My routine working life more settled day 'pon day
Never thought I'd check almost daily
For your letters by the door, in vain.
So no news is bad news, and my body won't forget
No matter what my mind resolves
My mode of action's set
I can't believe our time has flown
Though it's like we never met
And no news is bad news, don't know how to regret
Is this the way it will be?
Oh, my friend.
Is this really the way you want it to be?
Oh, my friend.
You and me, remember? You and me...
Have I had the last letter you will ever send?
Will I really never see you smile again?
Will we really never meet on Earth again?
Will I really never hear your laugh again?
Will I really never meet your eyes again?
Is this really the way it has to be, my friend?
My friend... my friend...
