When I Was Gone

Posted by bartpop Category: Lyrics

The moon is stepping out tonight
Won’t you come out too
Find me underneath the stars
I crossed the great divide
On a path that leads to you
Under wild, magnificent skies

When the war came down
Wasn’t much to go around
But I’ve placed those bets
And I live with my regrets

And I tried and tried
To take you off my mind
Did you miss me
Did you want to kiss me
When I was gone

It’s a crooked path
That takes my steps
Leads me far from home
To wild places where I wander to be found
For my crimes and my mistakes
You take me anyway
And your kisses are the sweetest I have found

When the war came down
Wasn’t much to go around
But I’ve placed those bets
And I live with my regrets

And I tried and tried
To take you off my mind
Did you miss me
Did you want to kiss me
When I was gone

Cereus never blooms in the sunlight
And the busy man has got no time for love
And the destinies we chase
Change from day to day
Til we learn to trust
Enough to get it right

I’ll pull you close
You’ll feel my heartbeat
And I can feel your’s too
And the promises that lovers make tonight
Are written in the stars
That hang above our heads
In the perfect, deep blue August sky

And the rain comes down
and it’s perfect
We are perfect too
Did you miss me
Did you want to kiss me
When I was gone

And the rain comes down
and it’s perfect
We are perfect too
Did you miss me
Did you want to kiss me
When I was gone
