  • Two weeks away feels like the whole world should have changed,
    But I'm home now, and things still look the same
    I think I'll leave it 'til tomorrow to unpack,
    Try to forget for one night that I'm back in my flat
    On the road where the cars never stop going through the night,
    To a life where I can't watch the sun set
    I don't have time
    I don't have time

    I've still got sand in my shoes,
    And I can't shake the thought of you
    I should get on, forget you
    But why would I want to?
    I know we said goodbye,
    Anything else would have been confused
    But I want to see you again

    Tomorrow's back to work and down to sanitation,
    Run a bath and then clear up the mess I made before I left here
    Try to remind myself that I was happy here,
    Before I knew that I could get on a plane and fly away,
    From the road where the cars never stop going through the night,
    To a life where I can watch the sun set,
    And take my time
    Take all my time

    I've still got sand in my shoes,
    And I can't shake the thought of you
    I should get on, forget you
    But why would I want to?
    I know we said goodbye,
    Anything else would have been confused
    But I want to see you again

    I want to see you again

    I want to see you again

    Two weeks away,
    All it takes,
    To change and turn me around,
    I've fallen
    I walked away,
    And never said,
    That I wanted to see you,
    Again

    I've still got sand in my shoes,
    And I can't shake the thought of you
    I should get on, forget you
    But why would I want to?
    I know we said goodbye,
    Anything else would have been confused
    But I want to see you again

    I've still got sand in my shoes,
    And I can't shake the thought of you
    I should get on, forget you
    But why would I want to?
    I know we said goodbye,
    Anything else would have been confused
    But I want to see you again

    I want to see you again
    I want to see you again Writer/s: DIDO ARMSTRONG, RICHARD W NOWELS, ROLLO ARMSTRONG
