used to blow around like i could teach
the wind a thing or two
every night out on the town
every morning stumbled through
i'm slow to learn, quick to forget
but that don't stop me wishing
some day i'm gonna find my way back
from these days since i gone missing

half way up a fire escape
my back against the town
open and vacancy flashing in my eyes
i'm looking for someway down
24 hours, Open All Night, 10,000 kW hissing
blocking out the stars to guide me back
from these days since i gone missing

been known to bark when there ain't nothing there
been known to the dark and the light that lives there
with a broken heart and eyes full of sand
i'll fall right into you again and again and again and again....

now i've listened to your breathing in
the middle of the night
i've listened to your heartbeat
i was hoping that you might
care for these few stones i picked up while i was hitching
lay them on the path to guide me back
from these days since i gone missing

i sing this song for the times we ran
and the times when we stood still
rolling in the tall grass at the top of mcgriskin's hill
i sing this song for the day you left
as the leaves changed their colour
i sing this song for your brown hair
and that dress you wore all summer
