Chasing Yesterday



There's something in the way she moves me to distraction.
I've travelled all this way to try and make amends.
'Cause heavy in the air are the words that she left hanging.
I've tried to walk away but I only stand and stare.

In the rain that comes...all of the love that was left behind is gone.
When the Riverman runs...find me the girl who electrified the storm.
'Cause in a little while...she'll be gone.

I waited in the rain, my feet too wet to stand in.
I shouted out your name behind the rainbow’s end.
But somewhere in the crowd she heard me jingle-jangling.
And like a memory that fades, she slipped away again.
