Song on the Radio
I was making my way through the wasteland
The road into town passes through
I was changing the radio stations
With my mind on you
Your friends call you Lily Paloma
But that's not the way that you are
It's too much of a gentle misnomer
For a shooting star

But you and me, baby
I saw you there
Straight away I knew
There's really no hiding
I'll tell you right now
What we're gonna do
We'll go collecting the days
Putting the moments away

You're on my mind like a song on the radio
You're on my mind like a song on the radio

I remember the first time I saw you
Alone in the dark with a drink
With a candle flame burning before you
And your thoughts closed in
You were staring out into the distance
Not seeming to hear what I said
Why did you put up such resistance
Like all the lights were red

'Cause you and me, baby
I saw you there
Straight away I knew
There's really no hiding
I'll tell you right now
What we're gonna do
We'll go collecting the days
Putting the moments away

You're on my mind like a song on the radio
You're on my mind like a song on the radio

I don't know what it was that was painful
But sometimes it's there in your face
There are times when you just look disdainful
Of the human race
But then on the wings of emotion
We circle each other in flight
Till together we roll like the ocean
In its bed at night

'Cause you and me, baby
I saw you there
Straight away I knew
There's really no hiding
I'll tell you right now
What we're gonna do
We'll go collecting the days
Putting the moments away

You're on my mind like a song on the radio
You're on my mind like a song on the radio

Song on the radio
Song on the radio
