Can you look me in the eyes and say that you're happy with the way we've been leading our lives? Ten seconds 'til we hit the ground, but no one's going to hear the sound.
With our friends in different towns with new romances, I've been holding out for second chances. I've been unwilling to move on with my life. Once we were an ocean and I was the waves that would crest for days and days, but we will surely crash before we reach the bay.
I have a red gate in my head and the feelings it lets through are guilt and dread. All I see is an expiration date, are we too late?
With our friends all gone to different cities, I've been holding out 'cause you're sticking with me, but now I think it's time to move on with my life. Once we were a forest that would stay ablaze and we kept them on their toes for days, but the embers faded fast and the smoke is all that stays.
And if the sun should go down, and all we see are black clouds, don't turn your faith right around, I'll be there. And if the light is fading, and you are tired of waiting, don't let your heart be breaking I'll be there.
I speak in all capitals, letters with straight lines, staring at shipwrecks on the horizon. I'm screaming out for you now, hoping you might hear me somehow and take me away.
