MARCELLA

Words and Music, Roger Coghill


There in the darkness of my room

She seemed to lie there in the gloom

Come close I said, and lie with me

But she was silent in my troubled reverie.


Her skin seemed soft in my embrace.

I heard her breathe, I kissed her face.

She said, my dream from long ago:

No, please don’t touch me now. Just let me go.



Chorus:

I know I’ll never ever be

In love the way we were

There is no simple remedy:

She took my heart with her.

She stole my all too trusting soul

And tore my world apart

How can I ever fall

 In love without a heart?


I saw her through the window of the train

I knew that we would never meet again.

The years have passed, but I was wrong it seems,

Each night Marcella haunts me in my darkest dreams.


Marcella, give me back my stolen heart

I need to breathe again, and love apart.

If I can graft it back inside my chest

I shall be free, and leave your wand’ring  ghost to rest.


Chorus:

I know I’ll never ever be

In love the way we were

There is no simple remedy:

She took my heart with her.

She stole my all too trusting soul

And tore my world apart

How can I ever fall

 In love without a heart?
