lyrics

I saw a man wearing your old shoes, they were your dancing ones
I didn't know how he got hold of those so I asked him where they were from
All he said was they were from a charity shop but he wanted to know why I was curious
So we sat down on a bench and I started from the top

We met on the dance floor, he swept me off my feet
He told me I was pretty and I said he was sweet
He stayed the night and then another few
I fell in love and I know he did too

But I don't know where he is or why he left me
I don't know but I hope that he'll miss me
Ooooh woaaahhhhh

I saw a girl wearing your old shirt, it was your vintage one
You bought it from a stall in Camden, so why did she have it on?
I asked her but she said it was a birthday present from her mum last month
So I told her your name, and then I had to explain

We lived together for two years and one month
And then one day I came home and he was gone
There was no letter to try and explain
He'd packed his clothes and I never saw him again

But I don't know where he is or why he left me
I don't know but I hope that he'll miss me
Ooooh woaaahhhhh

Maybe he had the weight of the world on his shoulders
Maybe he wanted it to be over
Maybe he didn't want to be forgotten so he sold his clothes
And left a mystery to be solved

But I don't know where he is or why he left me
I don't know but I hope that he'll miss me
Ooooh woaaahhhhh
