Sometimes it seems like only yesterday
I who never was one to fold my hands and pray turned to the sky
It was the spookiest July I've ever seen
there was a whispering in the wire & a song in the trees

How I wanted you to step in to my world
& brighten the shade
How I wanted you
You took the blue out of the blues
& the grey out of grey

3 clouds afloat about above the riverside
From 9 flights up the town looked just about a thimbles size
& when you walked into the room
I thought I could hear my favourite tune
Rise from the floorboards, through the roof & into a sky of blue

How I wanted you to step into my world
& let the light slip in
How I wanted you to step in to my sorry life
& make it begin

A winding road leads off into the dark
From the clear light of the present to the shadows of the past
You picture a scene, the smallest thing
a certain something springs to mind
& it rattles the wire & makes these memories seem almost alive

How I wanted you to step in to my world
& brighten the shade
How I wanted you,
you coloured the stars & sky
& I wanted you to be mine
