Watching You - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

Try to see it from the other side
Keep on looking for a place to hide
You don't have to tell me
It's easy to find
If you're trying to make your dreams come true
Then just keep on doing what you do
And if you don't break the rules
It's going to be fine
So i'm just sitting here
Watching for the dawn to break
Just sitting here
Waiting for the time it takes
I'm sitting here
Searching for a clue - watching you

Here, this is me
I'm living my life through the night constantly
Or so i've been told
Hope i can make it before i grow old
With love on my side
I could write you a song that would make your heart fly
So good for your soul
But there's something about you
That's leaving me cold

So i'm just sitting here
Watching for the dawn to break
Just sitting here
Waiting for the time it takes
I'm sitting here
Searching for a clue - watching you
