Seems such a long time Since I thought about you
the way you looked ,the way you love me
Lying in a corridor, white wall all around me
I remenis a butterfly kiss

Seems such a long time, but its no time at all

The walls of this new place comfort a keep me
You had a hand in helping there
Soon I will cover the walls with pictures
Happy days in many ways

You are just around the corner
Sitting on a bus
You are smoking in a cafe
Taking care of us
you are calling every day
To check that i'm ok
You are whispering in my ear
Making it all clear, to me

Just when I lost you I needed to find you
I've read all your words
Tortured and funny
You were not living, yet you were not dieing
I'm filled with your humour
Calmed by your voice
