Goodbye Again

My heart has an endless capacity to break.

With apologies to Robbie Robertson and THE BAND, farewell to the Wacky Wild Woman:

Boards on the window
Mail by the door
What would anybody leave so quickly for?
Melissa
Where have you gone?The old neighborhood just ain’t the same
Nobody knows just what became of
Melissa
Tell me, what went wrong?Was it somethin’ that somebody said?
Mama, I know we broke the rules
Was somebody up against the law?
Honey, you know I’d die for you.

Ashes of laughter
The ghost is clear
Why do the best things always disappear?
Like Melissa
Please darken my door.

Was it somethin’ that somebody said?
Honey, you know we broke the rules
Was somebody up against the law?
Honey, you know I’d die for you!

They got your number
Scared and runnin’
But I’m still waitin’ for the second comin’
Of Melissa
Baby come back home.
