I see you sitting in the window And there's love in everything And I might as well be weeks away Though I don't know where I've been Thought I saw you in the sky tonight Thought I saw you on the train But it's all hazy in my memory And it's slipping from my brain It took forever to get home tonight And I'm sorry for my sadness, girl And all the time you spent alone Does our love still live inside your heart Does it live inside our home? I've been following a ghost tonight Down the streets where we once walked Past storefronts full of splendid daze And the best laid plans we made And my home was my heaven And your arms were my heaven Now I'm blinded by flourescent light And the ebb and flow of my mind And this stop and go reality Where an evening runs like a lifetime It took forever to get home tonight
