lyrics

Outside your window at night
I can hide in the light from your kitchen.
Alone, I know it's not right
but I have to see what I've been missing.

You make you dinner
and sit around the table that used to be mine.

And I just want to find some way to hold ya,
and I would follow you down to the hills of Arizona.
I'd trample your flowers,
and I'd watch you for hours,
but I'm still here alone outside.

You smile at your rich handsome husband,
adorable children are laughing.
I try to pry my eyes from the scene
and this domestic dream you are living.

You do the dishes,
and snuggle on the couch that used to be mine.

And I just want to find some way to hold ya,
and I would follow you down to the hills of Arizona.
I'd trample your flowers,
and I'd watch you for hours,
but I'm still here alone outside.

I tried to put you down but I can't get you out of my mind.
If I'm caught outside your house I could do some real time.
Now, the dawn is breaking and I'm here shaking while
you are safe and warm inside your bed.
And, I'm not there.

And I just want to find some way to hold ya,
and I would follow you under the snow of Manitoba.
I'd trample your flowers,
and I'd watch you for hours,
but I'm still here alone outside.
