Topic: Lost Among the Years

Lost Among The Years          4/4

    Here I sit all alone
    I wait for you by the phone
    And think of the time
    We first met

    You know where to find me
    Always where to find me
    I haven’t moved
    In years
                Bb                            Gm        F
        I’m waiting for the lock to click
    Bb                                 Gm        F
        As I listen to the second hand’s click
                Bb                      A
        Long past midnight

    No I didn’t sleep last night
    I laid awake all night
    With one ear on
    The door

    I keep the fires burning
    The home fires burning
    And I keep your room
    Lit bright

        Waiting for the moon to rise
        Watch it climb across the sky
        As time falls through the hours

    I think of lines to say
    Always rhymes to say
    What can mere words

    How do I love you
    Count the ways to love you
    In one word
    You’re life

        Now I’m watching a rising tide
        As the sun begins to shine
        To wash away last night

    We deal in opportunities
    Dream of opportunities
    Lost among the years

    Give me the front seat
    I demand the best seat
    The best seat
    In your life

        I watch your anger rise
        Till anger drives you blind
        And you run into the night

Re: Lost Among the Years

And I keep your room
    Lit bright

This line reminded me of the sentiment in "Downbound Train"


Now I work down at the car wash where all it ever does is rain.
