When You're Not Here

Written 1987

Verse 1:
I was tired at the end of the day
and then I remembered that you're far away
and I wondered if you feel the same way
I tried to be happy just thinking of you
to feel you with me in whatever I do
but my reality wouldn't come true

Refrain:
when you're not here
my love seems so unreal
my dreams become unclear
I start to doubt what I feel
without seeing you eye to eye
it's hard to dispel my fear
and yes of course I cry
when you're not here
when you're not here
when you're not here

Verse 2:
my heart stood still to shed a tear
the wind was chill so lonely and clear
I hope you will soon be here
there was no answer when I tried to phone
I made some dinner and ate alone
I started to wonder if you'd ever get home

Refrain.
