Comin' Back to Me - Rickie Lee Jones

( jefferson airplane )

The summer had inhaled and held its breath too long
The winter looked the same as if it never had gone
And through an open window where no curtain hung

I saw you
I saw you

One begins to read between the pages of a book
The shape of sleepy music and suddenly you're hooked
Through the rain upon the trees that kisses on the run

I saw you
I saw you
Comin' back to me

You can't stay and live my way
Scatter my love like leaves in the wind
You always say that you won't go away
But i know what it always has been
It always has been

A transparent dream beneath an occasional sigh
Most of the time i just let it go by
Now i wish it hadn't begun

I saw you
I saw you
Comin' back to me

Strolling the hills overlooking the shore
I realize i've been here before
The shadow in the mist could have been anyone

But i saw you
I saw you
Comin' back to me

Small things like reasons are put in a jar
Whatever happened to wishes wished on a star
Was it just something that i made up for fun

I saw you
I saw you
Comin' back to me
