please say you will stay at least through this lifetime,
because the walls won't breath and the ceilings just look down on the hole in my heart.
the center of my life.
a place only you can fill with your love.
please say you will remain at least until the winters end,
because the mirrors tell me things of growing old alone and of the hole in my heart.
the center of my life.
a place only you can fill with your love.
and it seems to me that you are the only thing that ever moves me anymore.
no matter how full of life this house is, it is empty without you.
please say you will stay at least through this last breath,
because with the windows open wide,
there is light to fill the darkness in my life.

    General CommentThere really should be some comments for this song. Its so gorgeous... I think its about a girl who is leaving the guy,but he is totally infatuated with her and seems to believe that without her he will 'grow old alone'.

    General CommentThis is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. I'm really suprised that one amazin' kid isn't more popular considering acoustic stuff like dashboard, john mayer, etc. and emo are becoming so trendy.
