The closest you've ever come to me Was to help me up the stairs You stood in the middle of the stairway You nearly dragged me up the stairs You've been asleep. Well, I've been asleep for how long? she says Why do you question me? He says, You never cared about time before, my friend. Seems like a thousand days since you've been gone... Seems like a thousand days since you've been gone... You're not my friend, you're not my love And this is something that we really don't discuss If there is no time, and there is no place. And, if there was, well, you'd never leave a trace And as all arch angels do to you And as all arch enemies will finally do to you, too Well, I found you Quiet now, songbird, just for one night Well, I know that you love to sing And, oh baby, well, I know that you love to write You live by the light of the moon and I live by light of desire Ooh, such words to her over the phone Just how many people are there with you now Well, I can see the trouble The sun is here today and I requested a storm But I like some kind of TIME/LIFE edition, Tradition, competition... Being the only thing that I really have to remember The great singers and the great players And if the sun warms up the rain, And the rain puts out the sun Why does the greatest love become the greatest pain? So, where are you? Sometimes I hear you crying and I wake up, and still I wake up crying Well, he is on my mind..he's everywhere And if he followed me home, will the sound of both of our voices simply disappear? Well, I miss you now... He laughs He has an attitude so I have an attitude, too He knocks on the door next to the courtyard Well, he frightens me so, I let him in But I'm already, well, I'm already screaming How can the greatest love come from the greatest pain?
