Produced by Steve Winwood. Album Talking Back to the Night. So wild, standing there With her hands in her hair I can't help remember Just where she touched me There's still no face here in her place. So cool, she was like Jazz on a summer's day Music, high and sweet Then she just blew away. Now she can't be that warm With the wind in her arms. Valerie, call on me Call on me, Valerie Come and see me I'm the same boy I used to be. Love songs fill the night But they don't tell it all Not how lovers cry out Just like they're dying.
