We were standing in an empty room The moonlight was falling You were holding my hand when the car pulled up for you And I could have spent a life with you But those days were over You were calling my name when your face faded from view
And wasn't it you who told me the sun would always chase the day And wasn't it you who told me:
[Chorus:] Angels fly in the air tonight Saying wasn't it just like swimming out on the lake? And stars collide and the air's alive Or was it just like those promises that you made On our last night?
I remember waking up with you The days doing nothing You meant more to me then than I think you ever knew. But you were gonna be a doctor, movie star A poet at a Nobel seminar I hope the world never tore that out of you
Cause wasn't it you who told me the sun would always chase the day Yeah wasn't it you who told me
And what ever happened to the things you loved And the songs we played, and the indian days Whatever happened to the things you gave away? Like Harold and Maude singing Like Harold and Maude singing
I was waving as you drove away The sunlight was falling You were writing backwards in a dusty window pane
