You mouth “hello”
And “I missed you”
Through the baggage claim window
You put on a show

When you came through
Your new suitcase and a smile
Yeah – it’s been a while
But that’s your style
And you wouldn’t want it any other way

Then in the morning
After lovin’ you
Throughout the whole evening
You were off again

Sayin’ “I would love to
Stay with you but then
We’re so different
That’s not what I meant
Don’t take what I say in some other way”

Have fun
Take care
See you

Have fun
Take care
See you
