lyrics

come back to me
don’t let me lose you in the ether
you’re either gone or trapped beyond
my line of insight

right on time and out of touch
you’re out of reach, I think too much
and we never meet
in the middle …

how can there be a middle
with no beginning and no end?

ideas, they come and come and come and go
ideas, born of nothing, born of knowing
I know nothing of what I know …

try to breathe, I try to see
just where you’re leading
shadows dance on our romance
and leave me dry

find my way back to the day
when I first heard you play
I knew right then
you were the one

but how can there be a future
with no present and no past?

ideas, they come and come and come and go
ideas, born of nothing, born of knowing
I know nothing of what I know …

come back to me
don’t let me lose you …
