Lyrics

You're in the black, in the black, in the black
Ain't it lovely baby, not comin' back
You're in the black, ain't you free

No more threats, no more debts
You're in the black baby, you left it all behind,
But you're still fine, yeah you're fine, still

We wish we could see you,
We thought you might find time to write us now and then

You're free, now and you're lonely
We love you but please do not ask us to pretend
Come home if you want a friend

I'm right on task, since you ask, I'm doing great
Really I am, I don't think, I don't blink,
Just press on press on

I'm doing fine, I'm not inclined to crack
Any time soon, baby you left us all behind,
But we're still fine, I swear we're fine, still

We cry for no reason
Late at night when we run out of thoughtless things to do

You're free, now and you're lonely
Won't you please come home so we can cry with you
I hear that you cry too

We cannot bring you back when home's not home
We can't make you pay debts you will not own
We cannot reason with the unforeseen,
And we can't compromise when there's no in between

But we wanted to see you
We thought you might find time to write us now and then

You're free, now and you're lonely
I love you but please do not ask me to pretend
Come home if you want a friend

You're free, now and you're lonely
We love you but please do not ask us to pretend
Come home if you want a friend

You're in the black, in the black, in the black,
Ain't you lovely baby, ain't you free

We cry for no reason
Late at night when we run out of thoughtless things to do

You're free, now and you're lonely
Please come home so we can cry with you
I hear that you cry too
