Now’s the time of year when all the voices that I hear
are all the songs of sweet Clarissa in my head
It comes in loud and strong, I know it won’t be very long
Until my mind goes back right to the place
the first time that I saw her face
just shining like an angel in the sun
Those were better days, before the darkness and the haze

Clarissa, there’s no need to fear
I’ll be home before the dawn and then our love can carry on
Clarissa, you never smile for me
I’ve waited so to hear your song,
but I know that when I knock upon your door
You will be gone

I still recall that summer’s day, Clarissa threw a look my way
that sent my heart careening into space
But little did I know just how that girl would hurt me so
We started out as lovers do
by making eyes and pitching woo
and promising the sun, the moon, the stars
Yes, I remember well that little lie she used to tell

Clarissa, there’s no need to fear
I’ll be home before the dawn and then our love can carry on
Clarissa, you never smile for me
I’ve waited so to hear your song,
but I know that when I knock upon your door
You will be gone, gone for forever my dear
I remember your face, and your eyes growing darker with fear
As my demons drew near

Clarissa, there’s no need to fear
I’ll be home before the dawn, your grave I’ll put a flower on
Clarisa, you never smile for me
I’ve waited so to hear your song,
but I know that when I knock upon your door
You will be gone. You will be gone

Clarissa
