Swing Out Sister – Make You Stay lyrics

Summer friend
Said you were leaving without saying when
Now sades of winder fade a deeper blue
A frozen pictures all that's left of you
A city sprawl beneath a neon sky
The future fading as you close your eyes
Lying awake through every dreamless night
That one last look gave you away
This time I thought I'd make you stay
Those endless summers are a memory
A world that wasn't ever meant to be
An empty space that no-one else could see
Drowned in the darkness of the deepest night
You came back to me and made it right
Twisting, pouring every breath of life
That one last look gave you away
This time I'd thought I'd make you stay
Warm as a feeling
Warm as a thought you can't explain
Cold as a winter
Cold as the frozen tears on your face
Wide as the future
Wide as this open empty space
Silent and broken
Yesterday seemed so far away
I thought I'd make you stay
Id make you stay
But one last look gave you away
