Everything but the girl - Assorted Songs



Missing

I step off the train
I'm walking down your street again
And past your door, but you don't live there anymore
It's years since you've been there
Now you've disappeared somewhere, like outer space
You've found some better place

And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain
And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain

Could you be dead?
You always were two steps ahead, of everyone
We'd walk behind while you would run
I look up at your house
And I can almost hear you shout down to me
where I always used to be
(repeat 1)

Back on the train, I ask why did I come again?
Can I confess, I've been hanging round your old address?
And the years have proved
to offer, nothing since you've moved
You're long gone, but I can't move on


Wrong

I wanted everything for a little while
Why shouldn't I?
I wanted to know what it was like
But I pushed you too far
I know
And you started laying down the law
Till I didn't love you any more
Now you can pull a little bit
There's a little give and take
And love will stretch a little bit
But finally it's gonna break

Wherever you go I will follow you,
Cause I was wrong
(Repeat)

So there we both were in that little house
Just hanging out
You didn't know what you were about
You turned to me as you were
Threading daisies on a chain
And you said, "It's decision time again"
Now you can pull a little bit
There's a little give and take
And love will stretch a little bit
But finally it's gonna break

Wherever you go I will follow you
Cause I was wrong.
(Repeat)

And the ground's gonna swallow you
I was wrong
I was wrong
I was wrong
I was wrong

I wanted everything for a little while.
Why shouldn't I?
I wanted to know what he was like.
Now you can pull a little bit,
There's a little give and take.
And love will stretch a little bit,
But finally it's gonna break.

Wherever you go I will follow you,
Cause I was wrong
