lyrics

i knew enough not to call you because
my friends tonight they saw you downtown
messing around.
i walked towards a breeze while the raindrops
hit the leaves. footsteps left tracks on the ground.
and i miss you tonight anna lee
i miss you tonight anna lee.

i had a dream that i left you for the sea
and you didn't kiss me goodbye.
i'm standing here watching spiders spin
a web to catch their dinner in by the smokestack
spitting out charcoal gray.
and i miss you tonight anna lee
i miss you tonight anna lee.

i heard a wise man repeat that a woman
with hair the color of wheat will take your skin
and cut you to the bone.
and if she passes this way again, a man
will give her a second skin to burn
and she'll leave him for the crows.
and i miss you tonight anna lee
i miss you tonight anna lee.

i forged a river with a gift i tied up to give her
but she was missing from the door.
i rang the doorbell three times and opened it up
to my surprise that she was lying on the floor.
i'm screaming anna lee
why aren't you breathing anna lee
and i can't remember a thing
tonight i miss you anna lee.
