Isobel

I thought it was funny
when you missed the train
When I rang you at home
they said you'd left yesterday
I thought it was strange
when your car was found
By the tree in Ennis
where we used to hang around

Dear Isobel, I hope you're well
and what you've done is right
Oh it's been such hell, I wish you well,
I hope you're safe tonight

It's been a long day coming
and long will it last
When it's last day leaving,
and I'm helping it pass
By loving you more.

And who he would become,
all the things he'd have done
Would he have loved you
and not let you down
And would he be stronger
than his father
Don't punish yourself,
leave it well alone

Dear Isobel, I hope you're well
and what you've done is right
Oh it's been such hell,
I wish you well,
I hope you're safe tonight

It's been a long day coming
and long will it last
When it's last day leaving,
and I'm helping it pass
By loving you more.
