From Home Again
..............................................

I saw you just the other day
I watched you walk a little way
You vanished 'round the corner
When I got there you were gone

You might of heard me if I'd called
We could have spoken but I stalled
And let the moment slip
And in a moment it was gone

I saw, you see
But you did not see me
You were going somewhere

I saw you driving down the road
I waved at you, you never slowed
I watched you as the distance
Made you small
And you were gone

A haze of dust rose on the air
Suspended for a moment there
It settled to the road again
It didn't last too long

I saw, you see
But you did not see me
You were going somewhere

Time was all I had
But the timing was bad
When I looked your way
You neglected to stay
You were going somewhere

My timing's bad
Your time's been sold
You're looking young
You're feeling old
You're looking straight ahead of you
I'm standing on the side
Your silver spoon is tarnished old
But still you'll turn it into gold
Ambition's going to get you there
I hope you like the ride

You were going somewhere
You were going somewhere
You were going somewhere
You were going somewhere
You were going somewhere
