akiko-i miss you

A couple seasons
just passed me by
since you made me feel so real
That feeling I remember,
it was as good as it can be.

I haven’t seen you for a while,
I wonder if you are well.
What’s going on in your mind,
I really would like to see.

I try to see but it won’t do,
it’s taking time to get near.

Something is hart to explain
I wonder can I tell you.

We haven’t been talking much
it doesn’t mean I don’t care
Should I just call you to say
I’m falling and I miss you.

oooh hoo
Wish I was with you in my dreams
and I’m praying to be by your side
and suddenly you’ll slip away

oooh hoo
Easy as flowing down the stream
Do you know that
Will you understand me
Why is it you make me wait so long

Sometimes do you think of me
as much as I think of you
I’d like to know when you dream
Am I there
Do you miss me

I know you can’t share life with me
and I don’t know what to do
but if you walk right thru my door,
you will see that I miss you

In my heart
I want you
to know that
I miss you
