Let You Get Away (Comet)

Written June 1997

Tab

well I never saw the comet, no I didn’t ride upon it,
+++ far away, away,
but I’d like to find a rocket, I’d just slip it in my pocket,
+++ I can’t stay, stay,
+++++ runnin’ fast, but that won’t last,
+++++ I’m not the one, I’m not the one to save you,
+++++ I don’t even know your past,
+++++ I’m the one, I’m just the one who let you get away
away, let you get away, away…

well I might’ve brushed your shoulder, but I never got much bolder,
+++ I was dazed, dazed,
no it wasn’t me who kissed you, I just turned around and missed you,
+++ sad to say, say,
+++++ runnin’ fast, but that won’t last,
+++++ I’m not the one, I’m not the one to save you,
+++++ I don’t even know your past,
+++++ I’m not the one, I’m not the one who made you
+++++ hovering beyond my grasp,
+++++ I’m the one, I’m just the one who let you get away
away, let you get away, away…

well I never saw the comet, every time I tried to spot it,
+++ I was late, late…
yeah, the moon and stars and the city lights threw a curtain ‘cross the night sky,
+++ turned it grey, grey,
+++++ runnin’ fast, but that won’t last,
+++++ I’m not the one, I’m not the one to save you,
+++++ I don’t even know your past,
+++++ I’m not the one, I’m not the one who made you
+++++ hovering beyond my grasp,
+++++ I’m not the one, the one who’s gonna take you
+++++ right to think you’d never ask,
+++++ I’m the one, I’m just the one who let you get away
away, let you get away, away…
