Watching the rain on the windows.
Watching the light on the floor.
Watching the kids on the sidewalks play
as I lean against the kitchen door.
The roses in the garden are all in bloom
but it don’t matter anyway
‘cause I am here and you are there
and you won’t be coming home today.

I dream of the day when I’ll look up
and see you coming down the road.
It’s been a long, dark summer here
and I feel tired and old.
I dream of the day when I’ll look up
and see you coming down the road.
Will you pick me up and spin me around
and never let me go?

Remember the day at the station
when we danced out in the rain
and everybody watched us
while they boarded the train?
Well, tell me nothing’s changed love.
Tell me we’ll dance that way again soon
when you get home here next to me
in this little empty room.
