miss you lyrics – ringside

i cannot be where the weather is fair
with you on the ground – me in the air
where whistling engines drink up restless hearts
i can still taste the last call – i still feel the bar
the plotting of managers in fast open cars
racing the agents – chasing the ancients
to the corner stores – to pick out our potions
i, like the others, believe we were born
to bleed at the borders to sleep with the storm
i must confess i have laid down
where stronger men dared not go

but i miss you – i miss you
there is nothing i can take
there is nothing i can do
to keep from running away

i know of what i’ve lost
on this quiet night
i still felt your grasp upon me
as i boarded the flight
and i watched you there in the window
i wondered how long you’d stay
waving your arms at the jumbo
as it tore us both away
i wish i could just turn myself around
follow my heart back to you on the ground
but i know just for tonight
is harder to hear than goodbye

but i miss you – i miss you
there is nothing i can take
there is nothing i can do
to keep from running away
at any cost
to keep from turning around
just to see what i’ve lost
