Away From Me

Driving down this empty road
Steam from the rain rising from empty pavements
Can’t stop thinking about the last time I saw you
Can’t get you out of my mind
The glimmer in your eyes, the way your hair fell across your face
The radiance of your smile, so far away from me

And the way you smiled at me, melted my heart, gave you the key
Made me go weak in the knees, struck me like a bolt out of the blue
But now you seem so cold and far, beautiful as a distant star
Now I’m stuck behind these bars, what keeps me away from you

My mind’s an empty vessel
You fill it every day
But now I’ve sunk too deep
I’m way over my head
The water’s closin’ in, I look around for you
I’m cryin’ out for air, I need a room with your view

Well if the sky can crack, there must be some way back
You cut a hole in my sky, yeah, yeah, you’re my Lorelai
