Lyrics

Imaginary Lines

Written By: James Hoople

I’ve been looking for - Imaginary lines
I’ve been looking at - Imaginary signs
I’ve been looking into - Just what to do
I’ve been looking for someone - someone like you

Crossing the lines - In the desert of my heart
Planting all those mines - Before the war even starts
With fortified defenses - And no enemy in sight
Thousand mile fences - And the cover of the night

Reaching, groping - Imaginary lines
Trying, hoping - For you to find

Imaginary lines - That I’m afraid to cross
And all those unpaid fines - Of yester-loss
I’m working in the dark - I’m halfway blind
No words hit the mark - No reasons rhyme

Try to think of what to say - Imaginary lines
As the moment slips away - In the teeth of time (x3)

(Instr. Break)

Imaginary lines - And the shadows grow long
Imaginary rights - Imaginary wrongs
In a world so full - Of imaginary lines
I imagine you - As your eyes meet mine

Needing, yearning - Imaginary lines
Pleading, burning - Until the next time

I’ve been looking for -- Imaginary lines
I’ve been doing time -- For imaginary crimes
I’m still looking into -- Just what to do
I’m still looking for someone --- someone like you
