Light breaks underneath a heavy door
And I try to keep myself awake
Fall all around us on our hotel floor
And you think that you've made a mistake
And there's a pain in my stomach from another sleepless binge
And I struggled to get myself up again

I wanna hang onto something
That won't break away or fall apart
Like the pieces of my heart

And globes and maps are all around me now
I wanna feel you breathe me
Globes and maps I see surround you here
Why won't you believe me?
Globes and maps they charter your way back home
Do you wanna leave or somethin?

And dreams came around you in a hazy rain
You opened your mouth wide to feel them fall
And I write a letter, from a one-way train
But i don't think you'll read it at all

And globes and maps are all around me now
I wanna feel you breathe me
Globes and maps I see surround you here
Why won't you believe me?
Globes and maps they charter your way back home
Do you wanna leave or somethin?

And I can't take this anymore
Well I know that I can't take this anymore
I can't take this anymore
Cuz I know someday I'll see you walk out that door

And globes and maps are all around me now
I wanna feel you breathe me
Globes and maps I see surround you here
Why won't you believe me?
Globes and maps they charter your way back home
So Do you wanna leave? Do you wanna leave?
Globes and maps they charter your way back home
Do you wanna leave or somethin?

    General Commentmy favorite song on the new album... it's going to be really hard to see my girlfriend leave for new orleans for school in the fall. it's a long way from detroit, but "globes and maps, they charter your way back home."

    General Commentit seems like this song is borne of pain. he knows that someone is torn about leaving him,(Do you wanna leave or somethin) and he wants her to stay, (I wanna feel you breathe me) but he knows that in the end she will leave. (Cuz I know someday I'll see you walk out that door) eventually, he just cant take the pain of her indecission(I can't take this anymore ). so in the end, all he has is the knowlege that she at least always has the way to get back to him, and the same goes for him. i dont know if that made sence, but its what i hear when i listen to the song, its a good one

    General Commentthis song is enough to make me cry.

    "I wanna hang onto something
    That won't break away or fall apart
    Like the pieces of my heart."
    true, a little cliched but its used so well..

    "i wanna feel you breathe me."
    this is what makes EMO .. EMO. pop music can never master the feeling you can input into 6 words.

    undoubtedly one of the best songs off of the new SoCo cd.

    General Comment"Globes and Maps" is about him and his girlfriends long distance relationship. They long distance has finally caught up to them and he can't handel it. He wants to be with her but he can't because he has his music carieer to prosper.
    He wants to tell her how he feels about the long distance but he doesn't want to hurt her because he knows that they are both already hurt from the seperation...
