lyrics

If you and I were living in the days before phones,
My calls to you might make the skies their home
Until my eyes turned blue,
But I never would find anything up there
That resembled how I feel about you,
And Lord, my body shakes when I awake to find,
In all these phone lines, not one can get through
To the truth of you, Maria.

So if you leave here, leave on a steam train,
Disappear yourself in a landscape,
Travel out across the plains to a land of colours changing,
Where all the years go by, ten of yours for one of mine.

CH:
And thereby help me at least to find
Something here that the heart can understand,
Cos the mind now makes no sense
Of anything beyond darkness and silence,
Rolling out, rolling out before me.

If you and I were living in the days before phones,
My calls to you might make the hills their home
Until my eyes turned green,
But I'd never have seen anything out there
That compared to what you mean to me,
And Lord, it leaves me cold to find
The phone I hold emits no sound
That'll ever help me get my head round you, Maria.

So if you leave here, leave with a hat on,
Vanish into the mist you emerged from,
Travel on, one more lost thing, long gone
And not returning from where the years go by,
Ten of yours for one of mine.

(Repeat CH)

I wish I lived in the days before phones,
So I could miss you well.
