english bay lyrics – blue rodeo

you are so far away
on this cold and empty night
as i lie in a hotel room
lookin’ at a street light
outside my window
i listen to the rain
and the sounds of the p*ssin’ cars
and the waves on english bay

and i wonder if you think of me
as i dream of you
do you hear the song
that i sing
from this hotel room
cause i see you in the stars above
and in every setting sun
and even though you’re fifteen hundred miles away
i hear you howlin’ at the moon

and i hold you in my mind
and i start to float away
yea the whole world seems very strange
in a pleasant kinda way

and as the morning sun comes up
and puts an end to this long night
more than anything i wish
you were here
lying by my side
holding me near
listening to the rain
and the p*ssin’ cars
and the waves
on english bay
