Three white cars passed me by
I could see the clouds
In their windshields.
Three white stars in a twilight sky
And now that the clouds are gone
I see, one more that catches my eye,
I see, into the heart of the sky,
I see, something I tasted long ago
That was coming back to me, come back.

I remember you reminded me of the subtleties
The little things that make your day
And the rain moves on
As the tide rolls in

In just a few days I’ll still be here,
But you’ll be far, far away.
So one last time I hold you near
And save the hero
For another day

I remember you reminded me of the subtleties
The little things that make your day
And the rain moves on
As the tide rolls in

And the distance between us
Wouldn’t seem so long
If we knew that one of those birds
Still left up in the sky
Gave a cry as he witnessed
One of those moments that you and I
Look at the stars in the twilight sky
And count one, two, three
And one more that catches my eye

I remember you reminded me of the subtleties
The little things that make your day
And the rain moves on
As the tide rolls in

I remember you reminded me of the subtleties
The little things that make your day
And the rain moves on
As the tide rolls in
