lyrics

I’ve got time, I’ve got time
and a notion in my mind that we could talk
and try to push this thing along.
I got your note, got your note
and a picture book of photos to remind me
but you know it wasn’t me who had forgot.

I’ve got fears, I’ve got fears
that I ain’t known in all my years
as I drive to your new home out in the desert.
I’ve got hope, I’ve got hope
but its tied up in a rope made up of doubts
that this could ever happen to you and me.

You got a way about you that makes me fight
all the things I know for sure are right.
Even though I know why you’re not here I can’t see
how you got away from me.

I’ve got your face, got your face
in my hands but empty space is all I find
to try to help to ease my mind.
Now I’ve got doubts, I’ve got doubts
cause I’m realizing now that this won’t work
when you can’t even look me in the eyes.

You got a way about you that makes me fight
all the things I know for sure are right.
Even though I know why you’re not here I can’t see
how you got away from me.

Got my feet, got my feet
and they walk across the street to my car
but you’re not coming with me
So I’ve got tears, I’ve got tears
and they blur my rear-view mirror as I see
Las Vegas slowly fading away.

You got a way about you that makes me fight
all the things I know for sure are right.
Even though I know why you’re not here I can’t see
how you got away from me.
