Lyrics

She touches me with her shadow
At the break of dawn from across the bay
Waves roll by, they shimmer
And I feel fine

A mesmerizing beauty
A constant charm and a will so strong
I raise my arms and imagine
She is mine

I wish, I wish you wouldn’t
Go away
I need a little more time
Be cuz I wasn’t brave enough to say
You were the sun in my sky
I woulda, coulda, didn’t
Tell you babe
I shoulda laid it on the line
I shoulda laid it on the line

How I miss her on the horizon
So alone at the end of the day
Stars fade in and they glimmer
She’s on my mind

Somewhere under the moonlight
Is she a memory or a distant dream?
She’s the everything I have lost
And cannot find

I wish, I wish you wouldn’t
Go away
I need a little more time
Be cuz I wasn’t brave enough to say
You were the sun in my sky
I woulda, coulda, didn’t
Tell you babe
I shoulda laid it on the line
I shoulda laid it on the line
I shoulda laid it on the line
I shoulda laid it on the line

I wish, I wish you wouldn’t
Go away
I need a little more time
Be cuz I wasn’t brave enough to say
You were the sun in my sky
I woulda, coulda, didn’t
Tell you babe
I shoulda laid it on the line
I shoulda laid it on the line
I shoulda laid it on the line
I shoulda laid it on the line
I shoulda laid it on the line
I shoulda laid it on the line
I shoulda laid it on the line
I shoulda laid it on the line
