Just beyond my windowpane, I saw you Walking in the rain away from me Visions of your future lay before you You are free
I saw you in the company of strangers Laughing just a little bit too loud Looking at reflections in a mirror I can see the smiling faces But not me among the crowd Wondering how
I wish that I could play this like a love song So I could shape it like I wanted to I'd make it purely from the heart I know that surely from the heart There only comes the gentlest of tunes But where are you?
We tried to set the world on fire And almost did with our desire Two of us and maybe more Kids inside a candy store Sparks of joy and celebration Suddenly we're drowned beneath the tears And baby, you're the reason that I haven't played this song in years Yes baby, you're the reason that I haven't played this song in years
Some believe in magic potions Heads all full of crazy notions Castles built upon a sandy shore Only magic I believe in Is the magic I receive from Loving you and needing nothing more Nothing more
We never heard each other's cries That's how lovers turn to lies When I gave, you wanted more Then suddenly we're keeping score I forgave your small deceptions Till I couldn't hide my deepest fears And baby, you're the reason that I haven't played this song in years yes baby, you're the reason that I haven' t played this song in years
