there's a sign up ahead / says no signs for a while
and a line in my mind / from a song we both like

it sounds like me and you / and all we're going through

flip the tape hit rewind / it's my turn to drive

little light tonight / i just saw our whole life
you're a sweet avenue / that i can't seem to get to

now i'm so far from you / i'm naming stars for you

ship to shore do you read? / s.o.s. j.t.b.

there's only one way through / and i don't know
if it goes through you / i can't even see
where we are now? / nothing's changed

little light tonight / i don't like being right
but i know what will be / will somehow be allright

i see you c.w. / there is no other you

dawn comes down to your room
sing song blacking up my blue

the floor's a mess of cords / track number four
could use some more / if it takes a broken heart
just roll the tape / nothing's changed

    General CommentThat's my favourite JTB song and one of most beautiful songs. I think it's about breaking up and missing someone (c.w. in this case) after some time has past.

    General Comment'if it goes through you' is 'if it goes to you' i think. And I don't hear the I on 'i see you c.w. ' Who knows, i'm just a perfectionist jerk.
