Lyrics:

I can't sleep at night with all these
images of you a dancin' in my eyes.
Pass the mirror on my wall and see where all your lifetimes fall in place.
There were times of easy rhymes and moving along the right pace.
But they've gone by like shiplights in the morning--
it wasn't many mornings ago.

I saw you out West somewhere,
they say it's somewhere near to Colorado.
You were wearing futures on your sleeves, and
I was livin' possibilities.
Well I'm so afraid of getting close to you again.
I know how much you mean, and that's some warning.
It wasn't many mornings ago.
It wasn't many mornings ago.

Like the breeze when we were walkin'
hand in hand through country fairs and dancers,
I open up a little lightness,
I open up my arms to let you in.

But I'm so afraid of getting close to you again.
I know how much you mean and that's some warning.
It wasn't many mornings ago.
It wasn't many mornings ago.
