By The Way

She says she’s gone and won’t be coming back
Up on that high wire pride and balance act
I’ve got my fingers crossed

Strings snap and the burning tent falls to the ground
Let’s hope she’s not afraid of circus clowns
I’ve got my fingers crossed

And by the way I love you, by the way I care
For what it’s worth I miss you
When I wake and you’re not there

By the way when the sun breaks through the clouds
I think of you and you’ve always made me proud
Every day I thank my lucky stars
That I can always tell you once again

I used to cry because I’m so far away
But I have woken to a brighter day
Where I think of you

Too close for comfort is a sunburned face
The ground between us is a safer place
Where I think of you

By the way when the sun breaks through the clouds
I think of you and you’ve always made me proud
Every day I thank my lucky stars
That I can always tell you once again
