Someone I Used to Know

(Bob Nolan)

 

Somewhere down that silent distance that we call tomorrow,

I’ll wake upon a somewhere morning and I’ll want you so.

And maybe all these empty years have never passed at all

Time has just been standing still

And yesterday has never been

And you’re still there.

 

Reaching out your hand to brush away the mist of time

And walk into the warmth of now and I’ll be there

To touch you softly, then embrace

For all the long years when….

And life will then begin again

If you are there.

 

And so I watch the autumn shadows closing in around me

And hear their siren voices calling, “Won’t you come with me?”

And suddenly I’m rushing down the corridors of time,

Searching for a somewhere door

To open up and walk inside

And find you there.

 

Reaching out your hand to brush away the mist of time

And walk into the warmth of now and I’ll be there

To touch you softly, then embrace

For all the long years when….

And life will then begin again

If you are there.

If you are there.

 

(Demo performed by Dave Bourne.)
