    Mail by the door
    What would anybody leave so quickly for?
    Ophelia
    Where have you gone?

    The old neighborhood just ain't the same
    Nobody knows just what became of
    Ophelia
    Tell me, what went wrong

    [Chorus]
    Was it something that somebody said?
    Mama, I know we broke the rules
    Was somebody up against the law?
    Honey, you know I'd die for you

    Ashes of laughter
    The ghost is clear
    Why do the best things always disappear
    Like Ophelia
    Please darken my door

    Was it something that somebody said?
    Mama, I know we broke the rules
    Was somebody up against the law?
    Honey, you know I'd die for you

    They got your number
    Scared and running
    But I'm still waiting for the second coming
    Of Ophelia
    Come back home
