lyrics

The sun just packed it up
Said my time round here is done
I'm needed elsewhere round the world
I couldn't change his mind
He was set on passing time
Somewhere else with someone else who wasn't me

The endless summer days
Of wearing out my favourite jeans
Running fast and playing hard among the stars
All our secrets plain as day
In the sweet deep shade of a runaway train
Honey, I'm just trying find out who you are

There's a mystery in your face
I long to solve and right the world
There's a sadness in your eyes that breaks my heart
If I could do a thing or two
I'd do it all for you it's true
I'd ride the wind to get to where you are

I packed a bag and filled the tank
With the gasoline left in a jerry can saved
For a rainy day but I guess this one will do
I've been missing you dear since the day we met
In the shade of a train that you wished we had left
And all the stars up in sky just make you blue

There's a mystery in your face
I long to solve and right the world
There's a sadness in your eyes that breaks my heart
If I could do a thing or two
I'd do it all for you it's true
Lasso the moon and pull down all the stars

And I will build a life with you
And a home with my hands
So you will always know I love you
Stone and wood, the stuff that's good
A foundation of love
With windows to let in all the sunshine
Smiles in frames our children's names
How I ache for the day
That I may put a roof over your head

There's a mystery in your face
I long to solve and right the world
There's a sadness in your eyes that breaks my heart
If I could do a thing or two
I'd do it all for you it's true
I'd ride the wind to get to where you are
Lasso the moon and pull down all the stars
I'd climb aboard that tired old freight car

The sun just packed it up
Said my time round here is done
I'm needed elsewhere round the world
