VERSE 1 Maybe next week We can meet up and I can tell you Everything I feel But I doubt that it’ll happen When you’re avoiding me When I tried come round to see you You friend told me that you were not home so maybe next week It will be different I guess we’ll just have to see CHORUS What What What what do want from me I can’t tell what you want me to be What What What what you want me to see I just want you to set me free VERSE 2 Maybe Next Year There’ll be a moment When I can call you and we can make our peace But I don’t think that it’s gonna happen It seems to me that were not meant to be I have tried to Make a difference To be the one you want to see But it’s not happening at the moment I guess we’ll just disagree CHORUS What What What what do want from me I can’t tell what you want me to be What What What what you want me to see I just want you to set me free What What What what do want me to see What What What what do you want me to be What What What what do want from me What What What what do I do to be free

I remember oh so long ago What you said to me and what I did not know I now know everything I heard it from a friend Who told me all the words that you forgot to send You’ve made me dream of people I see in the dark Who never seem to be What they say they are You took me to the edge When I needed your love what I thought was friendliness Was really just a push CHORUS Out on the road I go Where I’m going I don’t know But I’ll be on my own It’s the loneliness of the long distance strummer and if I wait Here all by myself I think I’ll be alright and I’ll find someone else She will care for me she’ll always be there and she will love me as much as I love her Out on the road I;ll go When I’m coming home she won’t know But I’ll never be on my own no more lonelines for the long distance strummer

I still remember the heart tearing love you gave Wild and burning, a powerful heat wave Part2 But the agent of change he came like a foe Wearing the night as dark barren cloak They said you were not coming back They sent me a photograph From naked trees I hear the stark call of crows (Dressed In Black) On the shoulder of men I see the falling of snow (Dressed In Black) They bear what remains to a deep earth hole (Dressed In Black) There’s a sheet thrown over as they lower it below (Dressed In Black) so when I see you dressed in black I wonder if you're coming back from the destiny you call your own from the streets you travel all alone we pass the hat They pass the gun deep black boots that kick the trails of blood & death & coffin nails like a man who was asking to murder (dressed in black) like a man who would smile no further (dressed in black) alone cause the dark reaper has come (dressed in black) and stolen from me what I'd built my world on (dressed in black) What did you expect of me, make my exit dressed in black When I open my eyes the truth comes like a slap (dressed in black) the angel is dark, top to bottom, front and back (dressed in black) it lays in the earth and pretends to be trapped (dressed in black) but sneaks in my clothes, in my lungs, in my pack (dressed in black) it denies me a life I can never get back (dressed in black) now and forever I'll be dressed in black (dressed in black) Dressed in black Dressed in black Dressed in black Dressed in black

She was born in 1973 Just a few years after me I think we met in 93 Maybe a year or two before She got quite lost in 99 Up to then she had seemed fine and she was gone in 2001 When she was missing for so long The brown leaves show something has gone wrong Another year another summer gone Winter’s come to Jennifer Winters come to Jen She came back to us in 03 But never seemed the same to me She drove the Vegas 2 years later Came home because her mother made her Her past was lost 2008 I went to see her but had to wait I got the call May 2010 I never would see Jen again The ticking’s stops when things go wrong I still think of her though she’s gone Winter’s come to Jennifer Winters come to Jen
