Tonight the sky above
Reminds me how to love
Walking through wintertime
Where the stars all shine
The angel on the stairs
Will tell you I was there
Under the front porch light
On a mystery night

I've been sitting watching life pass from the sidelines
Been waiting for a dream to seep in through my blinds
I wondered what might happen if I left this all behind
Would the wind be at my back ? Could I get you off my mind
This time

The neon lights in bars
And headlights from the cars
Have started a symphony
Surrounding me
The things I left behind
Have melted in my mind
And now there's a purity
Inside of me

I've been sitting watching life pass from the sidelines
Been waiting for a dream to seep in through my blinds
I wondered what might happen if I left this all behind
Would the wind be at my back ? Could I get you off my mind
This time

I've been sitting watching life pass from the sidelines
Been waiting for a dream to seep in through my blinds
I wondered what might happen if I left this all behind
Would the wind be at my back ? Could I get you off my mind
This time

    Whatever he does , however he tries to forget her , he will never be able to , beacuse everytime he is determined to do it he fails because their love is deep and true and pure

    I know what i would like it to mean... That he wants her back.. He misses her.. But i think when he say "the things he left behind have melted" in his mind and "now there's a purity"... I think he has found peace... He can move on without her..

    He wonders if someday he is going to forget her, even if he let her go, even if he get away from her memory, he just wonders if her memory someday is going to fade.

    He wants to forget lyla noveck and he's tried so hard but can't, he's also waiting for her while trying to let her go.
