Keep Me Away From You

lyrics

This day couldn't go on any longer for me its been all night
I want to slip into your arms indefinitely it feels alright
I've got time, wasting away beneath the cold winter nights
maybe one day I'll find, what keeps me away from you
I heard you singing far and loud like a bluebird singing from her nest
I walked up to you and looked you straight in the eyes, before I drew my breath
I've got time, sometimes I feel I'm losing my mind
Maybe one day I'll find what keeps me away from you
All our friends from years ago, they're busy working overtime
its not a concrete fact but its understood, I never set out to walk that line
I've got time, wasting away beneath the cold winter nights
maybe one day I'll find, what keeps me away from you.
has anybody seen my bride, walking down the coast?
