As I watch you flickering slowly
In the shadows nothing to hold
It's as if I don't recall
Our time before and would it be so wrong
Not to remember?

There are times I look at you differently
Like I'd never seen you before
Funny after all we've done
You could be someone
I don't know at all
(Don't know you at all)

Catch me I don't want to fall

But you pull the mountain from under me
Look I'm dangling up in the blue
And it's a cartoon coyote eternity
Before I drop down to you

What am I supposed to do now?

There is something beautiful shining
In the far off night of your hair
Funny for a while it seemed
To come from the sky but it's in your head
Yes it fills your head

You and I don't always fly
Let me go I want to fall
Deep into the dark
But I'll get back to you
And I'll always know how to find you
Cause you shine like the midnight sun

    General CommentSimon wrote these lyrics to/for/about John when John left the band. It is pretty self-explanatory if you know that. Losing a friend, someone you depended on for so long, and now, you don't even recognize them any more. And then they drift away, leave you...
