Living In Your Letters Lyrics

by Dashboard Confessional

I'm always assuming the worst
But you're going on nonetheless
And there's nothing to cushion your heart led fall

Letters from further away keep pulling me close to home
And there's something to cushion my callous sighs
And I know that you hope for longer good-byes
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 nonetheless
And you won't let me sink though I'm beggin' you, I'm beggin' you

Phone calls from further away and messages on my machine
But I don't ever tell you this distance seems terrible
There is no need to test my heart with useless space
These roads go on forever, there'll always be a place
For you in my heart

So I'll hit the pavement, it's gotta be better than 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 in love when you're ten
