If You Were Here

by Thompson Twins




~~*~~




If you were here

I could deceive you

And if you were here

You would believe

But would you suspect

My emotion wandering?

Do not want a part of this anymore


The rain water drips

Through a crack in the ceiling

And I'll have to spend

My time on repair

But just like the rain

I'll be always falling, yeah

Only to rise and fall again


If you were here

I could deceive you

And if you were here

You would believe

But would you suspect

My emotion wandering?

Do not want a part of this anymore




~~*~~

This is what being in love feels like to me.

Sounds like, too.


Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that

I was 21 when it was released,

and being 21,

was full of hormones and longing and crushes,

and all sorts of imagination and lust.


This song features all of that,

and more.

All in less than three minutes.

It's a true gem.
