Ray

Ray,

As of today,

I can't say

Things will ever be the same.

And that could be a shame.

 

'Cause though

I think I know

Another lone-ly

Exile when I see one,

And you appear to be one,

Still...

 

I'm playing it down,

'Cause I could really be found

If you've got it to spare.

I'm playing it cool,

But it's terribly cruel,

'Cause I oughtta be there.

 

Ray,

What can I say?

You don't know me

And it's just wishful thinking,

To keep myself from sinking.

 

Hence,

No evidence

To support any theory I have handy

That you could understand me.

So....

 

I'm playing it down,

'Cause I could really be found

If you've got it to spare.

I'm playing it cool,

But it's terribly cruel,

'Cause I oughtta be there.

 

'Cause you're as bad off as me...

 

Ray,

Can we repay

Ourselves for days

That we've lost through indecision,

With one of recognition?

 

If so,

Then here I go.

'Cause some things you know--

And some you're just believing.

And hope it comes out even.

I...

 

I'm playing it down

Cause I could really be found

If you've got it to spare.

I'm playing it cool,

But it's terribly cruel,

Cause I oughtta be there.

I oughtta be there.

I oughtta be there.
