red guitar

Baby
I miss your red guitar
I loved the way your hands knew how to play
My heartstrings

Once when
We could dance all night
We had a music of our own and we
made it happen

The stars and me
We won't go far
right here is where we are
The stars and me
Yes here we are
Missing your red guitar

Just now
I was simply dreaming,
a dream that I had fallen asleep with you
beside me

Waking
I thought that you were with me
I thought that you were sitting by my bed
in silence

The stars and me
We won't go far
right here is where we are
The stars and me
Yes here we are
Missing your red guitar

I've no use for win or lose
all I want is you
but flying pigs nor god himself
can make my dream come true (x2)

Baby
If I had you near me
I would write a different song,
a song of love we once knew

I look
up and see the moon
it's not the one we once saw in France
together

The stars and me
We won't go far
right here is where we are
The stars and me
Yes here we are
Missing your red guitar

The stars and me
We won't go far
unless we find where you are
But until then
Here's where we are
missing your red guitar

missing your red guitar

missing your red guitar
