Need You Near

Taking time
Is the earth still moving?
Think that I'm
Never growing old
Words that rhyme
Can't describe this feeling
Hear the chime
But the hour's unclear

I'm so far away from home
In my new home
And I'm happy living here
But I wish I could have known
Where have you gone?
I need you near

Late at night
All alone and thinking
Think I might
Try and talk to you
You're in sight
But I still can't see you
There's no light
Shining down on me

Stars and windows look the same
You're behind them
And I hope you reappear
Every time I hear your name
I remind them
I need you near

And I'm wondering what's going to happen next
Trying to be poetic in a text
The future's running late for me it seems
Guess I'm going to have to wait inside my dreams

Taking time
I can feel it moving
Think that I'm
Gonna look good old
Words that rhyme
Can't describe this feeling
Hear the chime
Hour's still unclear

I'm still far away from home
In my new home
And I'm happy living here
But I wish I could have known
Where have you gone?
I need you near

And I'm wondering what's going to happen next
Trying to be poetic in a text
The future's running late for me it seems
Guess I'm going to have to wait inside my dreams
