I've been looking in churches and looking in bars
Thought that I saw you in the oncoming cars
It was your reflection cast off by the light
And into the sky of this dark city night

And I thought that I saw you in the tallest of trees
Swayed back and forth in the mid-autumn breeze
When the leaves reddened and left too
I knew then that it wasn't you

Where in the world are you now?
Where in the world are you now?
Oh where in the world are you?
Oh where in the world are you?
Where in the world are you now?

And I looked for you there in music and song
'Cause I thought I could find you there
They were only notes pulled from the air
Not the kind I could read or breathe if I dare

Where in the world are you now?
Where in the world are you now?
Oh where in the world are you?
Oh where in the world are you?
Where in the world are you now?

    It's about an old love, who's gone away, and the author of the lyrics doesn't even hear a word from them now. However, they can be out of their life, but they wouldn't be out of the author's heart.
