  • I wanna know
    Since you've been gone
    Have I been on
    Your mind?
    'Cause I know I was for a while

    Late last night
    I saw you out
    For a moment I
    Turned to stone
    'Cause there's still something only we see

    Don't talk
    I'd have run to kiss your mouth
    Is it me or
    Just a dream that never dies?

    There's a reason why
    I never returned your calls
    I wish I could forget it all
    But I never returned your calls
    'Cause I'd fall in again

    We're leaving here
    We're on the run
    The time has come
    I don't hear no alarms
    Fall asleep in my arms

    A lover's game
    Is never fair
    But I still care
    And I know you do too
    'Cause there's a part of me that's you

    Don't talk
    I'd have run to kiss your mouth
    Is it me or
    Just a dream that never dies?

    There's a reason why
    I never returned your calls
    I wish I could forget it all
    But I never returned your calls
    'Cause I'd fall in again

    I still find parts of you
    In the corners of my bedroom
    Someday comes too soon
    The radio plays our favourite tune again

    There's a reason why
    I never returned your calls
    I wish I could forget it all
    But I never returned your calls
    'Cause I'd fall in again Writer/s: Charles Salt, James Skelly, Joseph Donovan, Joshua Dewhurst, Myles Kellock, Thomas Ogden
