Open the door
On the atmosphere.
Let the breath out
You've been holding in for years.
And if you get
A spell of dizziness
Oxygen mask
In the time of your distress.

And if I say too much dear
Just let it drift away.
And if I stray too far from here
Just let me drift away.
Drift away.
Drift away.

Take a poke at the atmosphere.
Saw you swinging
And fighting back the tears.
And if you find
Some kind of where withall
Reach around here.
We'll break each other's fall.

And if I say too much dear
Just let it drift away.
And if I stray too far from here.
Just let me drift away.
Drift away.
Drift away.

And if I say too much dear,
Just let it drift away.
And if I stray too far from here
Let me drift away.
Drift away.
Drift away.

    General Commentthis song is so slow. that its nice. its something you can just sit and sigh. its an amazing song. its so sad but it makes you feel so relaxed. this band is awesome and should be heard more often. i highly recommend this song. oh and what this song is about! the guy acts like a complete idiot and the girl should just let him go. but he of course still wants to be with her. but it just doesn't work that way sometimes! ahah. whatever.
