lyrics

I’m aware that this might make me sound strange
But I’ve never felt the need to travel, roam or range
I respect those who do, and those who see it through
But I never really felt it was for me.

As we walked to the bus stop in the rain
There were things we didn’t say, and things we’ll say again
It was such a simple way to do such a profound thing
I’m not sure when I’ll see you again.

I’ll wait a long long time to see you
And when we meet I’ll know exactly where we stand
And if we part I’ll say goodbye goodbye, but follow you with my eyes
My head, my heart, I don’t think I’ll understand.
I don’t think I’ll understand.

When we’re talking on the phone you sound the same
You remind me nothing’s changed, repeat it time and time again
But the miles between us start to infiltrate my mind
And I’m not sure when I’ll see you again

I’ll wait a long long time to see you
And when we meet I’ll know exactly where we stand
And if we part I’ll say goodbye goodbye, but follow you with my eyes
My head, my heart, I don’t think I’ll understand.
I don’t think I’ll understand.

I have travelled many miles to see you
Over continents and oceans I have roamed.
I have slept in airport corridors and made my bed down on the floor
To see the place that you now call your home
Now I understand a little why you’ve gone.
