lyrics

You’re the only face I want to see this morning
the only hand I want to hold today
the only voice to tell me that you love me
the only words I want to hear you say

You’re the only one I ever want to talk to
the only one who ever understands
everyone must speak a foreign language
and I am lost to who I really am

Chorus
It hits me now and then without a warning
I’m doing fine and then the ground gives way
riding high and suddenly I’m falling
you’re not there and I just fly away

You’re the only shadow’s length that I want near me
the only set of clothes beside the bed
the only pair of shoes under the table
the only one I want inside my head

So it’s all that I can do to face the coffee
I made too much and burnt the toast again
it’s quiet and the silence creeps up softly
I wonder if this day will ever end

Chorus
It hits me now and then without a warning
I’m doing fine and then the ground gives way
riding high and suddenly I’m falling
you’re not there and I just fly away

You’re the only one I want to see tomorrow
I’ll be waiting at the station for your train
and we’ll embrace the heartbreak and the sorrow
but never leave me standing here again
no never leave me standing here again
