Señor Absence

lyrics

If I wanted to talk to a brick wall I would’ve stayed inside alone.
I came out to talk to you but when we're face to face you stare straight through me.
If you’re eyes weren’t so bright before they glazed over then I probably wouldn’t stick around.
But at the same time I find the way you stare profound.
How do you go from peaceful to piercing in such a short space of time?

Where do you go?
(You’re drifting)
When will we talk again?
(So sick of silence.)
I’ll sit right here.
(What else is there to do?)
When are you coming back?
(In your absence.)

Daydreamer, where have you been? I’m still waiting for an answer to
(Daydreamer) (Where have you been?)
scratch the itch under my skin.
Will you be back by sunset? Will I be left here staring at the ceiling?
(Daydreamer) (Staring at the ceiling)
Always a drifter. Eyes glazing over.
There she goes again.

I could watch you dream all day and watch you sleep all night.
Sometimes a man needs rest, or he will become second best.
We’ll wake and we’ll talk for an hour or two.
Making plans, you drift away!

Where do you go?
(You’re drifting)
When will we talk again?
(So sick of silence.)
I’ll just sit right here
(I’m waiting)
When are you coming back?
(When are you coming back?)

Daydreamer, where have you been? I’m still waiting for an answer to
(Daydreamer where have you been?)
scratch the itch under my skin.
Will you be back by sunset? Will I be left here staring at the ceiling?
(Daydreamer) (Staring at the ceiling)
Always a drifter. Eyes glazing over.
There she goes again.

Daydreamer.

Daydreamer, where have you been? I’m still waiting for an answer to
(Daydreamer where have you been?)
scratch the itch under my skin.
Will you be back by sunset? Will I be left here staring at the ceiling?
(Daydreamer) (Staring at the ceiling)
Always a drifter. Eyes glazing over.
There she goes again.

Daydreamer, where have you been? I’m still waiting for an answer to
(Daydreamer where have you been?)
scratch the itch under my skin.
Will you be back by sunset? Will I be left here staring at the ceiling?
(Daydreamer) (Staring at the ceiling)
Always a drifter. Eyes glazing over.
There she goes again.

Always a drifter. Eyes glazing over.
There she goes again.
(You’re still so far away)
