I'm always assuming the worst
But you're going on none the less
And there's nothing to cushion your heart
Let it fall

Letters from further away
Keep pulling me close to home
And there's something to cushion
My callous eyes

And I know that you hope for longer goodbyes
Embracing for forever
And falling in your eyes
In your eyes, your eyes

Pouring over photographs, I'm living in your letters
Breathe deeply from this envelope it smells like you
And I can't be without that scent, it's filling me
With all you mean to me, to me

Continually failing these trials
But you stand by me none the less
And you won't let me sink though I'm begging you
I'm begging you

Phone calls from further away
And messages on my machine
But I don't ever tell you
This distance seems terrible

There's no need to test my heart with useless space
These roads go on forever
They'll always be a place
For you, in my heart

So I'll hit the pavement it's gotta be better then waiting
And pushing you far away 'cause I'm scared
So I'll take my chances and head on my way up there
'Cause turning to you is like falling love when you're ten
