This is me; standing in the front yard of your house
With a radio that’s playing Peter Gabriel
And I’m praying that this song somehow gets through
‘Cause I need ya and it’s all that I can do

You’re the only thing that I need
You’re the only thing that I can’t seem to keep
So if you’re listening I want you to know
I never should have let you go
Let you go

This is me; sitting on the Empire State Building
From the West Coast to underneath this quarter telescope
And I’m praying that you show up
‘Cause I’ve been sleepless, in Seattle without you

You’re the only thing that I need
You’re the only thing that I can’t seem to keep
So if you’re listening I want you to know
I never should have let you go
Let you go

This is me; and I’m sorry
I was blind to love until I let it go
And now I’m broken but I’m hoping
That to your heart these words will open up the door

You’re the only thing that I need
And you’re the only thing that I can’t seem to keep
So if you’re listening (x3) I want you to know
I never should have let you go
Let you go
