Don't go, Kathleen,
Don't go walkin' down that road;
Don't take the hand that reaches,
And don't believe the eyes that turn to greet you.
Now can't you see
What was made so plain to me?
All the years just go for nothing,
With nothing in between.
No, Kathleen....
No, Kathleen.

Don't go, Kathleen,
You can't make it sight unseen;
All the words they whisper to you,
Aren't exactly what they mean.
And you could only lose
On this beaten path you choose;
And though you might escape, you'll lie awake,
And ask what might have been.
No, Kathleen. Kathleen....
Don't go, Kathleen.

Look at these lines upon my face,
And this trembling in my hands;
I'm just a shadow in this place,
Where there is no escaping.

No, Kathleen,
Don't go walkin' down that road;
'Cause the place where you start out,
Is as far as you can go.
And the pain doesn't pass,
And the promises won't last;
Till the day comes,
When you smash the looking glass to smithereens.
No, Kathleen....
No, Kathleen.

Just look at these lines upon my face,
And this trembling in my hands;
I'm just a shadow of that place,
Where there is no escaping.

No, Kathleen,
Don't go walkin' down that road;
Don't take the hand that reaches,
And don't believe the eyes that try to greet you.
Now can't you see
What was made so plain to me?
All the years just go for nothing,
And nothing in between.
No, Kathleen....
Don't go, Kathleen.
