Written by Colin Hay
I Haven't seen you in a long time
Since I've been gone
It always seemed to be the wrong time
Its the same old song
Looks like we'll never be together
Our whole life through
There might be changes in the weather
But not for me and you.
Can you hear me, when I'm calling out to you?
Can you see me, sometimes in the night
When you put out the light?
I haven't seen you in a long time
Since you put me away
I only see you in my dream time,
At the break of day
I know I never ever listen,
My whole life through.
If I had heard your words of wisdom,
I could be with you.
Can you feel me,
When he's making love to you?
Can you hear me,
When your alone, when you hang up the phone,
When it's real late at night, and you put out the light!
I still see you
And I still feel you
And when I'm alone
My mind starts to roam
You come in the night
When I turn out the light
I haven't seen you in a long time
Since I've been gone
It always seemed to be the wrong time
It's the same old song
Looks like we'll never be together
Our whole life through
There might be changes in the weather
But not for me and you.
