Miss you again

A song I wrote in Lancefield, Victoria in 2007

So many years have passed us by,
here I am wondering why:
maybe instead of the road to the left,
I should have gone down to the right.

Mostly I keep all these feelings at bay,
so they'll never get into my head -

But when that old town falls asleep,
when the moon has gone to ground,
when the quiet of this place fades the smile from my face,
I think of you, and miss you again.

We walked through the fields
I was holding your hand,
it feels like it was yesterday:
you came to my house by the light of the moon
to say you were going away.

Mostly I try to keep out of my mind
all the things I should have done or said -

But when that old town falls asleep,
when the moon has gone to ground,
when the quiet of this place fades the smile from my face,
I think of you and miss you again.

Maybe instead of the road to the left,
I should have gone down to the right;
now all that's left is the road in my mind
that goes down, down, down, down, down...

Sitting on the porch in the late afternoon,
watching the young children run:
it's been a good life in so many ways,
but why do we only get one?

Mostly I don't let my thoughts further stray
as I go to get into my bed -

But when that old town falls asleep,
when the moon goes to ground,
when the quiet of this place fades the smile from my face,
I think of you and miss you again.
