​Where Are You Tonight?

This song is by June Tabor and appears on the album Aqaba (1988) and on the compilation album The Definitive Collection (2003).

Where are you tonight I wonder
Where will you be tonight when I cry
Will sleep for you come easy
Whilst I alone can't slumber
Will you welcome the morning
At another man's side

How easy for you the years have slipped under
And left me with a shadow the sun can't dispel
For I built for you a tower full of love and admiration
But I built it so high I could not reach it myself

The view from my window is a world full of sadness
The face in my mirror is the one face I know
You have taken all that's in me, so my heart is in no danger
My heart is in no danger, but I'd still like to know

Where are you tonight I wonder
Where will you be tonight when I cry
Will sleep for you come easy,
Whilst I alone can't slumber
Will you welcome the morning
At another man's side

There is a silence and it cannot be broken
There is a pure heart and it's there I will go
Time will work its healing and my spirit will grow stronger
But in the meantime I would still like to know.

Where are you tonight I wonder
And where will you be tonight when I cry
Will sleep for you come easy
Whilst I alone can't slumber
Will you welcome the morning
At another man's side
