Joshua Payne – You Made My Life Stand Still lyrics

Just below the exit sign
You were shining like the moon
You looked at me as if
You left your heart somewhere
And now you've gone and closed the door.

I tried to smile; I tried to play
The one who simply walks away
But the streeetlights sing your song
And I can't get along
Without your love inside of me.

Run away, run away
Don't let the stars get in your way
The sky was painted blue
The night that time stood still

The paper skies are packed away
The Chinese lanterns swing and sway
You said that love was like a traveling rodeo
It comes to town and then it goes

Far away, in love's junk store
I found your letter waiting at my door
It said "I loved you so.
You made my life stand still. "
It said "I loved you so.
You made my life stand still. "

Ofel 'Jane' Watson
