lyrics

Caught in the middle, now its quarter to five
In the morning two suns in the sky
Was it a dream?
Oh no, I think its real
But its funny how you think
It’s funny how you feel

When sugar and water make for coherent dreams
So now in the morning will I know what they mean?
Can I think about them when my day gets slow?
Oh, its been such a long while that I think its time you know

How hard it is when you are not around
How hard it is when you are not around
And do you ever stop to think or wonder how?
How hard it is when you are not around
How hard it is when you are not around
When you are not around

You don’t have to use violence
You don’t have to use force
To keep away the ones who were here you before
I know where I could find you if I really wanted to
But I’ll sit with a stranger though, its funny who you’ll chose

Now I don’t even like her or want to know her name
Fuck what you’re thinking, I know you do the same
I can’t tell you everything but here is one piece of truth
I might be with her, but I’m pretending it’s you

How hard it is when you are not around
How hard it is when you are not around
And do you ever stop to think or wonder how?
How hard it is when you are not around
How hard it is when you are not around
When you are not around

At night I find myself praying, to The American God of Sleep
That he might give you cameo, in my next up-coming dream
I won’t care if it’s fleeting, no I won’t be sad when it’s gone
Cause the feeling inside of me, lasts all day long

I just want you around
