On the Diagonal

Twenty years is too long a time to love somebody who's been gone
for twenty years I saw your face whenever I saw mine
and it's too long a time without you
too short a time my life was about you
and your life was all about me
but somehow you got free

Here I am again, on the diagonal
on the diagonal, straight line to you
and I know this road like the back of my heart
and I can always find that straight line to you

Somehow you never seem surprised
to hear my voice on the telephone line
after the years you just say how'd you know to call me today
'cause there's so much that's happened without you
not a day goes by I don't think about you
and how it used to be
but somehow I got free


Twenty years is too long a time
to love somebody who never quite left
for twenty years my heart beat
whenever you took a breath
and it's too long a time without you
too short a life to love without you
and if you still want me
and somehow you get free
