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 lonely 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 oughta be there.

Ray, what can I say?
You don't know me, it's just wishful thinking to keep myself from sinking.
And hence, no evidence to support any theory I have founded
If you could understand.

And 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 oughta 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 just believe in 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 oughta be there.

I oughta be there
I oughta be there
I...
