Somehow the season always brings a picture of you
Baby boom baby
Holding on for everything you figured you're due
Little turtleneck girl
The moon on your shoulder
The wind in your lovely hair
Oh what a night
We sat on the beach and watched as the sun
Rose into the summer air

You said we couldn't miss what we never knew
Something about something that you had to do
Sitting on the sand with a hole in my shoe

I had no way of knowing where you might have been
Time goes by
All on my own I imagine you a life in between
All own my own
I worked on a letter but it never made it out of my head
Somehow reading your name it wasn't the same
As leaving the thing unsaid

How come I miss what I never knew
And drag out the past just to paint it blue
And spend my days with a dream of you

Oh, after a fall
Here I'm trying to find our name on the wall
It was neither yours nor mine
It was something of the two combined
From a time spent out of time

I work hard to see that you remember my name
Nod your head yes
Do all I can to make you want to see me again
Oh what a night
Got a letter from the mail, got a message from the telephone
Seems you're working in town
Moving around
Living alone

Now I'm caught in the spotlight
Walking the wire
My feet are frozen and my heart's on fire
What do I do if my dream come true
