Late for The Sky Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

All the words had all been spoken
And somehow the feeling still wasn't right
And still we continued on through the night

Tracing our steps from the beginning
Until they vanished into the air
Trying to understand how our lives had led us there

Looking hard into your eyes
There was nobody I'd ever known
Such an empty surprise to feel so alone

Now for me some words come easy
But I know that they don't mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch

You never knew what I loved in you
I don't know what you loved in me
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be

Awake again I can't pretend
And I know I'm alone
And close to the end of the feeling we've known

How long've I been sleeping?
And how long've I been drifting alone through the night?
How long've I been dreaming I could make it right?
If I closed my eyes and tried with all my might
To be the one you need

Awake again I can't pretend
And I know I'm alone
And close to the end of the feeling we've known

How long've I been sleeping?
How long've I been drifting alone through the night?
How long've I been running for that morning flight?
Through the whispered promises and the changing light
Of the bed where we both lie late for the sky
