You said you'd wait at night for me,
Near where the swings have always been.
I left my house and made no sound,
Not a soul was all around.
Soon I saw the streetlights glow,
Ran towards to say hello,
Everything was in my view,
Everything and everything but you.
Oh, but you
Oh, but you
Oh, but you

I took a left and stole a right
Counted my steps on that dark night.
I knew you must be somewhere near
You'd said you'd meet me here.
Maybe you had lost your way
In the shadows blue and grey.
Everything was clear and true,
Everything and everything but you.
Oh, but you
Oh, but you
Oh, but you

What could I do? I still had faith.
I saw my clock's dishevelled face.
But hours passed and still no sign,
Days and nights and Summertimes.
I am old but have no fear,
You said you would meet me here.
Everything is clear and true,
Everything and everything but you.
Oh, but you
Oh, but you
Oh, but you
