Bruce Cockburn – See How I Miss You lyrics

Rays of the moon make magic in the streets of the city
All the people get strange but their faces look so pretty
The walking graffiti, survivalist bums;
Even the secret police shout that you're the one
See how I miss you
Every psychopath gets his own magazine these days
I just read about how I can kill in a hundred ways
But I don't want to cause anybody pain
I only want to hold you in my arms again
See how I miss you
I watch this woman in a tight sequined lizard dress--
Tosses her hair like a sly caress
She got midnight voice like a beckoning saint
She got something special but you she ain't
See how I miss you
-- Toronto 11/1985
