lyrics

John

There comes a time when time is right
For the boldest choice to face the light
You steered your bike towards the night
Choices burning bright
You stand alone to make things right.

So I help you unlock the shed
Handed you your freedom
Not a single word was said as you closed the gate
You turned your back instead
You leave alone to set things right.


And I see you in the windowpane
And I hear you on the phone
Ghostly and tragic, searching for a home
And I clench your pain in the cold of the key in my palm
Your room now vacant and our hearts withdrawn
Oh John, you’re on my mind
Please John, just press rewind.


Now I staring at the sandwiches
I made for you on the night you left
They’re filling up with air, they’re growing stale
But I just stare and stare.
I want to open up my doors,
But your eyes, they are so closed.


We’ll never have a dinner for two
We’ll never have a dinner for two
