Story

I can’t dismiss you so easily. You telling me, “Just tell me if you want me to go,” is really kind of low. Of course I don’t want you to go, but even if you aren’t physically here, you would still be on my mind. I hate the fact that someone has so much power over me, that I have given someone that much power over me.

I hoped you would find me…

“I can’t get him to wake.”

More than this, I won’t say anything about the thoughts that inspired this song.

Lyrics

Suddenly I know your face
I’ve traced it line by line
but every time it fades away
 
Suddenly it’s not the same
You’re always on my mind
and quietly, I hear you say
 
“What do you know,
it’s time to say good-bye,
so just tell me if
you want me to go.”
 
Just say when
I’ve nothing else to offer
Will this do?
 
Suddenly I’m out of faith
But hope may do just fine
Until I believe again
 
Suddenly I went and they
will not find me in time
and frantically, I hear them say,
 
“Red lights,
I can’t get him to wake.
I swear that he was
fine just hours ago.”
 
Just say when
I’ve nothing else to offer
Will this do?
 
Suddenly it’s not the same
you’re always on my mind
