lyrics

YOU

I didn't foresee the way the day would run away from me.
Like a clown I ran around town.
Crossed the road between the cars
Weaved through a thousand faces, going different places

But you, you you you -oo -oo
were never far from my thoughts
it’s true -oo -oo -oo -oo it’s true, it’s true

I didn't foresee the way the rain would drizzle down on me
Or the longest queue just before noon.
And my, my heart sank in the bank,
As I stood and shuffled slowly on, stood and shuffled slowly on, stood and shuffled...

But you, you you you -oo -oo
were never far from my thoughts
it’s true -oo -oo -oo -oo it’s true, it’s true

After all the waiting and the painful easy listening blaring from the ceiling.
Through bits of calls and conversations, thoughts and observations
I did reach the place and – finally – asked for my money.
So when she looked up from the screen through her glasses at me and said
That’s what I owed not what I had
I had to laugh, I had to laugh, before I left.

I didn't foresee the way the day would run away from me
the thoughts of you that got me through
You're like a prism casting rainbows on the carpet of my soul
The story unfolds
Your hand I hold
Your love is gold

And you, you you you -oo -oo
were never far from my heart
it’s true -oo -oo -oo -oo it’s true, it’s true, it’s true, it’s true, it’s true.
