The time has come to part, my love
I must go away
I leave you now, my darling girl
No longer can I stay

My heart like yours is breaking
Together we'll prove strong
The road I take will show the world
The suffering that goes on

The gentle clasp that holds my hand
Must loosen and let go
Please help me through the door
Though instinct tells you no

Our vow it is eternal
And will bring you dreadful pain
But if our demands aren't recognized
Don't call me back again

How their sorrow touched us all
In those final days
When it was the time she held the door
And touched his sallow face

The flame he lit by leaving
Is still burning strong
By the lights it's plain to see
The suffering still goes on

The time has come to part, my love
I must go away
I leave you now, my darling girl
No longer can I stay
