lyrics

To Be With You

Sign on the window, I feel it’s getting cold
I’ve been running for years, out of breath, did you know?
When you’re alone and your heart is on your sleeve

I wanted to be with you, but the timing wasn’t right
I wanted to be with you – wouldn’t take me home that night

The days are getting longer, this mood is wearing thin
The more I try not to remember, the more it pulls me in
When you’re alone and your heart is on your sleeve

I wanted to be with you, when you were penniless
I wanted to be with you – but i was always second best
I wanted to be with you – when you travelled around the world
I wanted to be with you when you met that exchange girl

Days go, weeks fly, years pass, I’ve lost sense and track of time
In the hour of your own weakness you will realise

I wanted to be with you, when the others put you down
I wanted to be with you – when there was no one else around
I wanted to be with you – I’d be there till the end
I wanted to be with you – I wanted more than to be your friend

I wanted to be with you.
