Hey, didn't it all go just like that?
Hey, didn't it all go just like that?
one day you're down, the next you alight
walking the avenues in the June dark
stepping out as the city ignites
and that look in your eyes as you spun me around
where has it gone? disappeared into the ether
faded with September and vanished with the winter

Watch for me when the leaves start falling
Watch for me and hear me calling
Watch for me through the tumult of the years
I will still be living inside of you my dear

rain rattles the cobblestones
there were kisses in taxi cabs going home
and late breakfasts on the roof
we stood against the burden of proof
its a funny thing how when you're weightless
gravity sneaks up on you
and it steals away with your only one
along with the roar of your youth
and you're walking like the ghost of a memory
down some treelined avenue

Just another anonymous man
checking into a roadside motel
just another blank stare on the bus
another beau who had lost his belle
it was so long gone, we were tender in our fashion
hey look at me in roughshod clothes
my face gone ashen
darling make your way and ill see you one bright day
best wishes for the future babe
fair play to you babe

watch for me down all the days, down all the years
i will still be living inside of you my dear
