Tonight the sky above
Reminds me of you, love
Walking through wintertime
Where the stars all shine
The angel on the stairs
Will tell you I was there
Under the front porch light
On a mystery night

I've been sitting watching life pass from the sidelines
Been waiting for a dream to seep in through my blinds
I wondered what might happen if I left this all behind
Would the wind be at my back? Could I get you off my mind
This time

The neon lights in bars
And headlights from the cars
Have started a symphony
Inside of me
The things I left behind
Have melted in my mind
And now there's a purity
Inside of me

I've been sitting watching life pass from the sidelines
Been waiting for a dream to seep in through my blinds
I wondered what might happen if I left this all behind
Would the wind be at my back? Could I get you off my mind
This time

I've been sitting watching life pass from the sidelines
Been waiting for a dream to seep in through my blinds
I wondered what might happen if I left this all behind
Would the wind be at my back? Could I get you off my mind
This time

    General Commentwhat an amazing song from the august rush soundtrack

    the singer has a love on his mind that he cant stop thinking of. they've separated against their will and he regrets sitting around "watching life pass from the sidelines", knowing that she is still out there. he longs to dream about her or to have anything to remind him of her, and he even considers leaving everything in order to find her again. but he questions if he should because he worries about the wind being at his back, or pushing him away from his life that he has now. the main dilemma is that he is stuck in love and doesn't know what to do about it.
