Like a womb, night was all around Someone, somewhere must have talked some sense I could feel it moving underground So many things I still don't understand The dream I was having took on an ugly face I don't know if I was walking through heaven It could have been any place Skipping 'cross the water, wading through the sand Awake to find you gone, emptiness is where you lay I just had to smile for all the things you'll never hear me say Oh, I know, I could never get that near What do you expect me to do, disappear? You and me, we're as free as we can be Can't you see, like the trees so obviously... The message disturbs me so I throw it to the wind And after all the hellos good-byes etc. etc.
We can't start this thing again It's like the fog you walk towards, but never seem to reach Every morning now I hear that same old song And though the singer is long dead, his voice goes on and on Ugliness you have to learn, beauty you can't teach Awake to find you gone, a note pinned to my sleeve It wasn't just the things you took It was the things you had to leave Now it seems you were never here What do you expect me to do, disappear?
