"You Only Disappear" as written by and Mcrae....
Close my eyes, I'm moving still
Magazines and dollar bills
And you wake up to a fall of snow
Your telephone, your radio

Baby I'll call up a storm and keep you safe from harm
But you only, you only disappear

I can live with my regrets
Still raise a smile, still raise my head
And a stranger God can be so cruel
And a holy fool is still a fool

But this is all I can say, I have lost my way
But you only, you only disappear

With a word, with a line
With a smile that says goodbye
Baby says goodbye

It's raining now on royal street
And I'd walk to you if I could trust my feet

    General CommentI always have this image of some mysterious figure that was in his life. He realizes to late that there could have been something there and he missed it. He'd do anything to get that back but has finally come to terms that it won't ever happen.

    I've certainly found that feeling in my life so I relate deeply to it. Especially the lonely imagery of the falling snow.

    Amazing song, more people should know about Tom McRae.

    General CommentGreat song. It's obviously about losing someone. On the one hand he sings he can live with his regrets and still raise a smile, but in the end he confesses that he would run back to her if only he was brave enough.
