lyrics

Jet planes makin’ smoke trails cross the sky but I can’t see ‘em
Trains are running every fifteen mins but they won’t stop for me
Goin’ half crazy without you baby deaf dumb and colorblind
Stuck on rewind in the same old black and white movie in my mind

If you were here, oh the things that I could do
The clouds would clear there’d be miles and miles of blue
Without a sound my doubts would disappear
And all my walls would crumble and they’d fall if you were here

Rain showers dried up hours ago but I’m still soaking wet
Blackbird singin’ the songs of spring but I can’t hear ‘em yet
Feelin’ half broken my heart’s wide open but I can’t feel it beatin’
All because I’m either lost or dreamin’ or somewhere in between

If you were here, oh the things that I could do
The clouds would clear there’d be miles and miles of blue
Without a sound my doubts would disappear
And all my walls would crumble and they’d fall if you were here

Quarter after midnight lookin’ for something I can’t find
I can almost see your face and feel your hand in mine
Every song on the radio sounds like an empty street
Wonder where you are tonight and why not next to me
