empty chairs at empty tables

empty chairs at empty tables
there's a grief that can't be spoken.
there's a pain goes on and on.
empty chairs at empty tables
now my friends are dead and gone.

here they talked of revolution.
here it was they lit the flame.
here they sang about `tomorrow'
and tomorrow never came.

from the table in the corner
they could see a world reborn
and they rose with voices ringing
I can hear them now!
the very words that they had sung
became their last communion
on the lonely barricade at dawn.

oh my friends, my friends forgive me
that I live and you are gone.
there's a grief that can't be spoken.
there's a pain goes on and on.

phantom faces at the window.
phantom shadows on the floor.
empty chairs at empty tables
where my friends will meet no more.

oh my friends, my friends, don't ask me
what your sacrifice was for
empty chairs at empty tables
where my friends will sing no more.

(Les Miserables)
