& the only time i've touched you is in my sleep

so we've put an end to it this time.
i'm no longer yours and you're no longer mine.
you said this hill looks far too steep
if i'm not even sure it's me you wanna keep.
and it's been ten days without you in my reach,
and the only time i've touched you is in my sleep.

but time has changed nothing at all -
you're still the only one that feels like home.
i've tried cutting the ropes and
i let you go but you're still the only one
that feels like home.

you won't talk me into it next time,
if i'm going away your heart's coming too.
cos i miss your hands i miss your face
when i get back let's disappear without a trace

cos it's been ten days without you in my reach,
and the only time i've touched you is in my sleep.

cut time has changed nothing at all -
you're still the only one that feels like home.
i've tried cutting the ropes,
tried letting go but you're still the only one
that feels like home.

so tell me, did you really think...
oh tell me, did you really think i had gone
when you couldn't see me anymore?
when you couldn't...

cos baby time has changed nothing at all -
you're still the only one that feels like home.
and i've tried cutting the ropes,
i let you go but you're still the only one
that feels like home, yeah,
you're still the only one that feels like home,
you're still the only one i've gotta love.
