lyrics

He believed she was a gift sent from above
She was the kind of girl that he'd been dreaming of
He knew that he was bound to fall in love
with Madeline

They lived together so in love for several years
Until the day she wrote a note and disappeared
He read the words she wrote and shed a tear
for Madeline

And he cried-

I'll wait for you 'til the end of time, Madeline
Please won't you just give me a sign, Madeline
Let me know if you're still mine, Madeline

He never understood just why she had to go
What did he do to make her want to hurt him so
He could fill an ocean with the things he didn't know
about Madeline

And he cried-

I'll wait for you 'til the end of time, Madeline
Please won't you just give me a sign, Madeline
Let me know if you're still mine, Madeline

The love that you give away
Comes back to you someday
So have the faith to say what's on your mind

Take care in the things you do
It’ll all come back to you
If you see it through it'll be all right

Fall on your knees and pray
That she'll come back some day
And you might hear her say she'll stay this time

She's the one for you
You tell yourself it's true
And try to hold on to that lonely lie

It always ends the same
There's no-one left to blame
So you call her name
O, Madeline

He left his home in search of another way
To find the girl who long ago had gone astray
Then one day to his house a letter came
from Madeline

And it read-

"I'll be home soon on the number 9, love of mine. You have always been on my mind.
I hope we're fine. See you soon. I love you.
Signed,
Madeline."

And he cried-

I'll wait for you 'til the end of time, Madeline
Please won't you just give me a sign, Madeline
Let me know if you're still mine, Madeline

My Madeline
