Remember the day you told me you were leaving?
Far away on a long, long trip
The water at the seaside was windless and even
Gravity seemed to loosen its grip
And if you look across the beaches at the light
The sun is hiding underneath the red horizon line
Making outlines from the trees
Blinding you and me
Blanking out the world
I can't see anything behind your eyes

I can feel you shaking as you touch me
Taste the sweat dripping on your lips
A warm summer wind is blowing all around us
I never thought it might end like this
And as we stand on the sidewalk looking down
I could swear I see your shadow disappearing from the ground
Leaving me alone
With nowhere else to go
Standing in a strange place
Afraid to take a look around

I know you told me when you left
I wouldn't have a single thing to fear
But I wonder if you'll still remember me
When you're high up in the atmosphere
And will the thin air up there
Still carry my voice to you?
Like a bottled message on the radio waves
Will it ever get to you?

I know you told me when you left
I wouldn't have a single thing to fear
But I wonder if you'll still remember me
When you're high up in the atmosphere
And will the thin air up there
Still carry my voice to you?
Like a bottled message on the radio waves
Will it ever get to you?

You know you're gonna find me waiting here for you
Everyday 'til you come back
Maybe it would take a miracle but you know
I've always believed in that
And if you look down at me from the sky
I'll be standing alone, waving goodbye
Blowing kisses at the sun
Ignoring everyone
I never even stopped to ask you why
Why?
Why?
