  • I dug a single seed into the ground
    I hope it grows, grows
    In a year or two if you're around
    You'll see a rose, rose
    Pack me up and keep me hidden somewhere
    That you can find me
    On a train to Paris going nowhere
    Trouble bridge behind me

    Don't be gone too long (too long)
    'Cause you won't be there to love me when you're gone
    Don't be gone too long (too long)
    Tell me who's gonna love me when you're gone

    When you're, when you're gone
    When you're gone
    Golden leaves are dancing on the ground
    It's getting cold, cold
    Safe from time, will be forever young
    Never old, old
    See upon a fire out in space,
    Zooming up behind me
    All the wonder written in your face
    Was there beside me

    Don't be gone too long (too long)
    'Cause you won't be there to love me when you're gone
    Don't be gone too long (too long)
    Tell me who's gonna love me when you're gone
    Oh oh
    When you're when you're gone
    Oh oh
    When you're gone

    Bring it back to me, bring it back to me
    Is it really over?
    Bring it back to me, bring it back to me (is it over?)
    Bring it back to me, bring it back to me
    Is it really over? (Yeah)
    Bring it back to me, bring it back to me

    Don't be gone too long (too long) ('Cause it will be over)
    'Cause you won't be there to love me when you're gone
    Don't be gone too long (too long) ('Cause it will be over)
    Tell me who's gonna love me when you're gone
    Don't be gone too long (too long) ('Cause it will be over)
    'Cause you won't be there to love me when you're gone (when it's over)
    Don't be gone too long (too long) ('Cause it will be over)
    Tell me who's gonna love me when you're gone Writer/s: CATHY DENNIS, CHRISTOPHER BROWN, COFFEE, JEAN BAPTISTE, KYLE EDWARDS, MICHAEL MCHENRY, RYAN BUENDIA, SCOTT HOFFMAN
