Lyrics

My mind it wanders, can’t bring it round.
I feel an aching way deep down,
Sometimes I think… then I don’t dare,
I’m reaching for you, you’re not there.

Wish that I may, wish that I might,
Can’t get away from mem’ries tonight,
Try as I might, cry as I may,
I’m reaching for you, but you’re gone away.
Hey, Hey…

My friends they call me, ask how I’ve been,
Try to explain it, this funk I’m in,
I know the truth, simple I swear,
I’m reaching for you, you’re not there.

Wish that I may, wish that I might,
Can’t get away from mem’ries tonight,
try as I might, cry as I may,
I’m reaching for you, but you’re gone away.
I'm reaching for you, but you're gone away.
Hey, hey…
