I didn't notice that the envelope was from Mexico
I didn't acknowledge that all I wanted was sleep after a long day's work
the longest subway ride home
all I saw was your name at the top left corner of the paper in my hand
a yearbook list showed all the best
and we were stars on stage
though I'll never remember a line
I still see your face shining through campus halls
walking through the greenery
that's a face I like to see

dear sweet Rachel I can never get a handle
on my feelings when I want to
and I tell you this cause you know
you put it all in writing
that's a little bit frightening

and maybe the dream we had
well it should have come true
I was standing on the football field in my leather coat
I swung you around till you thought you could fly
maybe that was a dream meant to pass us by

dear sweet Rachel I can never get a handle
on my feelings when I want to
and I tell you this cause you know
you put it all in writing
that's a little bit frightening

funny how it seems you're never far away
funny how it seems the closer I get to the edge of my rope
well the bigger the net for my fall
oh to keep my spirits up
drink from my loving cup

dear sweet Rachel you can never get a handle on your feelings when you want to
and I tell you this cause I know
it's the song I'm singing
it's the gift I bring to you

funny how it seems you're never far away
