I wanna wake you up
I can hardly hear my footsteps
In the falling darkness
I can barely wait to see you
In your apartment
We were heading for the better times we wanted
We were sorry that the distance
Took more than we'd prepared

We could do it again (we could do it again)
Just another ending this time
Were you ever scared? (were you ever scared?)
Did you seek for reasons to get
Far away from all the travelling
And talking on the phone?
Can't you see it's only what we've been
Can't you see the threats?

Can't you see your own obsessions?
Can't you see you're counting days?
Can't you see I'm only happy
When you're in the house?
You should know I'm only waiting
For the times we never had
You should know it's all because of
You're not in the house

I wanna say it straight (wanna say it straight)
We could be whatever we dreamed
Something really good (something really good)
Just let yourself get to it
In your apartment
We were heading for the better times we wanted
We were sorry that the distance
Took more than we prepared

Can't you see your own obsessions?
Can't you see you're counting days?
Can't you see I'm only happy
When you're in the house?
You should know I'm only waiting
For the times we never had
You should know it's all because of
You're not in the house

(..you're not in the house, oh....)

Can't you see we're going nowhere?
Can't you see you're counting days?
Can't you see I'm only happy
When you're in the house?
Can't you see my only vision?
Can't you see I'm counting days?
You should know I can't be happy
Till you're in the house

    General CommentThe lines 'Can't you see your count in this?' and 'Can't you see I'm counting this?' should read '... counting days?'
