Im Looking out a window
On a gloomy rainy evening in the city
There are cars and there are buses
Rolling sadly down the street
Making splashes on the ground
In the puddles
Making very lovely sounds
I cant hear them

There is wind and there is sunset
And the lights go on in strange symmetric patterns
And Im warm within the confines
Of this room above the branches
As they shake like I am shaking
And they break like I am breaking
Oh Its that sound that they are making
Oh Id give my life to hear that sound again

And when the lights go on
I know that you've come home
I can hear your voice
Even when you've gone
You say ill get use to this
That there are more important things to miss
Like the children by the bed
On a summer evening right before the clouds roll in

There are never ending fragments
Of the sentences I wrote when I got lonely
They go round and round my head sometimes
Like clocks, I miss the ticking
Or the sound of my heart beating
Or the melody's repeating
I could read your eyes like poetry
I knew in time you've given up on me

There are two things that ill miss
When I walk out tonight and leave you all behind me
Oh, the love that you have given
and the love that you have taken
From my heart when things got hard for you
You walked away and left me by myself
The stillness of my silent world

I close the door
It makes no sound
But the heaviness has lifted
And I feel like I am dancing
Through the gloomy rainy evening
Where it doesn't look so gloomy anymore to me
I see it so clearly

Will you even miss me? I wanted more -4x
I wanted more -3x
