Sweet, don't sit still until night falls
haunting my sky, peering down and
keeping me awake.
Stars in your eyes, how much too bright they shine
through my window to keep me thinking
which at night that is unhealthy because
we both know I need sleep.
But please, dear, don't you worry about me, dear
you'll find I'm busy but please, dear
it doesn't mean I'm not thinking of you when
I sing dear, and dreaming when I sleep, dear
that you could only be here
by my side when everything's ok.

But oh, how unfortunate!
How damn unfortunate that I have to go and be away all the time.
But someday in this world, girl, you'll just have to find me
because I'm sure I'll be in Africa or somewhere...

Somewhere where there's no light to take my view of you
in my sky looking down on the village where I'l live.
And every night I'll sit outside and see if
I can hear your voice, girl, but I'm sure you'll be
much too far away.

But Oh, how unfortunate!
How damn unfortunate that I have to go and be away all the time
But someday in this world, girl, you'll just have to find me
because I'm sure I'll be waiting for you.

So here I am, writing you this song
to push the question along,
so we can die with the confidence that
I care for you, and I always will dear.
I'll never pretend you don't exist
so don't even bother wasting your time
trying to insist.
But, Baby, I'm sure you'll go far
the world's not ready for you,
you're all the blessings that you have to give.
So bloom, dear, plant your roots and bloom, dear.
And I'll be waiting out there for you to find me
and pass my hand again.

But oh, how unfortunate!
How damn unfortunate that I could never
let you get close to me.
But someday we'll cross paths on a sidewalk in New York
and it will be perfect again... again... again
