Orpheus
Lyrics & Music by: Carly Simon

Orpheus, it could have been
You could have held me again
You said your songs had all gone
And that the road back up was too long

But it was there for us
It was there for us
I loved you all along
Orpheus

The part of me that died
Was ready to be reborn
And you called of the hounds
Of hell with your songs

Orpheus, Orpheus
I loved you all along, Orpheus
Orpheus, It could have been
You could have held me again

But you couldn't wait
Somewhere along the road
You lost your faith
Out of despair and believing
I was gone
You gave up on my love
you gave up on us
But it was there for us
It was there for us
I loved you all along
Orpheus
