She sits alone in the dark, abandoned room

She sits alone in the dark, abandoned room

Eyes closed, awake in the midnight gloom

The London smog hiding the cold stars above

On the night that she mourned for the loss of her love

Her mother, her father, her ex-boyfriend

They'd tried to persuade her, but they left in the end

Five hours had passed, since she banged on the wall

Five hours had passed since he screamed; watched her fall

Such a short time, an eternity passed

A slip of her fingers; their time over so fast

It hurt to remember that las little grin

Then the fear on his face; her last image of him

She'd screamed and she'd begged, felt his hand on hers

A touch gone too soon, left her heart ripped open and bare

She couldn't remember sitting, nor them saying goodbye

She'd forgotten the moment she'd her last tears to cry

Lost them thinking of all the things she'd lost

Regained a father, but at just what a cost

The loss of a home and the love of her life

A cold fact that cut her like the edge of a knife

She wondered if she'd seen this, when she stared into the gold

That one day she'd sit here, so alone and so cold

When she'd seen in her mind all that would,

What never could, all that had, but never should

She opened her eyes, took a look at the clock

12.30, a tingle in her back like static shock

A back leans against hers, so near yet so far

Five and half hours she waited Doctor

The clouds parted, the moon shone from the cold sky above

On the night that she mourned for the loss of her love
