Trying To Get To You

Instrumental

(Colin Hay/Michael Georgiades)

Trying to take that midnight train
But it’s gone and broken down again
Now I’m stuck on Empty Avenue
Trying to get to you

Talking on the telephone
Only makes me feel more alone
Killing time with a chosen few
Trying to get to you

In this world of constant danger
I still look for kindness in strangers
And why oh why and why is not enough
And we cry oh cry our tears are not enough

Through firestorms and hurricanes
I’m 16 hours on an aeroplane
10 thousand miles of ocean view
Trying to get to you

In this world of constant danger
I still look for kindness in strangers
And why oh why and why is not enough
And we cry oh cry our tears are not enough

Walking through the driving rain
Just the thought of you remains
Lines are down I can’t get through
Trying to get to you
Lines are down I can’t get through
Trying to get to you
