Frisco (Tell Me How)

Written By: John Crist

It's raining but not where you are
and it's so cloudy but you're wishing on a star
that's pulling down on you
Whispering all that's gone and left you here

Do you miss me? Lying in your room
Is it still empty? Or have you made it home?
Do you hear my voice, coming through the telephone?

Because you've been running away
and I am on my knees

So tell me, how does it feel?
When there's no one around you
and you're waiting for something
to come and save you
and tell me, how does it feel?
When there's so much behind you
and you've fallen so easily
again and again

It's so constant, though nothing here's the same
It's like a child that boarded the wrong plane
and only smiled, when he noticed that the weather had changed

It's all I can do to know
that I'll soon be coming home
(Chorus 2)
Because you could always make me fall asleep with the songs you could sing to me, you would make me fall in love you
so tell me, how does it feel when there's so much behind you and you're waiting for something to come and save you?
