lyrics

I don’t think that I’ve ever understood
Why you would call just to hear the sound of my voice until
This very moment and I hate that I
Can only learn the hard way; never poised from anyone else’s mistakes
Rewind these tapes; and play them all back just to see your face
Take one more gaze into your eyes and I’ll pretend that that I’m alright, (but...)

The air is so thick and my lungs feel like they’re caving in
Constantly I’m waiting for the day I get to see you again
Maybe if I put it down on paper,
My hands will stop shaking and my words will stop wavering

You have slipped behind the silver lined veil
And you have left me with this feeling
That the world won’t stop reverberating and the ground won’t stop shifting
‘Cause I can’t do this on my own,
But I know I’m not alone if I keep a part of you alive in me
I’ll be here looking to the sky
And I know you’re up there somewhere looking down from all the satellites

Maybe you have forgotten everything, but I can still
Remember your patience
Thank you for killing me with kindness, teaching me to stand straight,
And how a smile can go a hell of a long way
It’s such a shame that I didn’t get to say it quite enough
But I will always believe that every part of you is with me, (but...)

The air is so thick and my lungs feel like they’re caving in
Constantly I’m waiting for the day I get to see you again
Maybe if I put it down on paper,
My hands will stop shaking and my words will stop wavering

You have slipped behind the silver lined veil
And you have left me with this feeling
That the world won’t stop reverberating and the ground won’t stop shifting
'Cause I can’t do this on my own,
But I know I’m not alone if I keep a part of you alive in me
I’ll be here looking to the sky
And I know you’re up there somewhere looking down from all the satellites

You will be my cherished escape
