you were there lyrics – john foxx

you were there
when i was looking through
your pictures in the night
you were there
when i fell asleep and i
woke up in the light
and when the streets filled
and my heart stilled
and i asked someone the time
chorus:
you were there
you were there
you were there
i know you were
and you were there
when i stopped to stare
by the quiet trees
and you were there
and i thought that you were
someone else i’d seen
and when the traffic roared
and my heart soared
so that i could hardly breathe
(chorus)
oh you were there
when i stood and watched
from so many years ago
you must have smiled
when i was walking through
the places that you’d known
and when i’d given up
and all the letters stopped
and no trace at all remained
(chorus)
