There we sat in a parked car trying to find the words.
You held my hand and whispered a quote you heard somewhere.
It was something about dying by my side,
the pleasure would be all mine, you said softly.
I want to take you away from here, someplace quiet, where everything is green and nothing ever goes wrong.
And if right now you can't take my hand and join me in our new life, I'll be waiting there for you.
The road is long and there are no signs to direct you home to me.
You can change your mind, but not your heart.
So if you try and fake it again, I'll know, and if we try and make it then we'll grow old together and die in each other's arms with nothing left unsaid, and it will be as perfect as life will allow.
Well I believe in heads-up pennies and four leaf clovers over and over but still I can't see my luck running out right in front of me.

    General CommentEhh...I noticed this song has a reference to Konstantine by Something Corporate...as well as possibly others...what's ironic is that the line that is referenced is just before (or part of) a reference to a Jimmy Eat World song.

    "There we sat in a parked car trying to find the words.
    You held my hand and whispered a quote you heard somewhere.
    It was something about dying by my side,"

    That being a reference to...

    "it's to dying in another's arms and why I had to try it
    it's to Jimmy Eat World and those nights in my car
    when the first star you see may not be a star" (From Konstantine)

    ....and there you have it. Sort of a double reference

    General CommentWell sorry, I didn't realize this song was out longer. In that case, Konstantine has a reference to this one...

    I just recently found out about this badn, so forgive my not knowing.

    (And please try to be nicer in correcting people...) -.-

    General Commentactually, konstantine came out approximately 2 years before this song. this song came out in april of this year. so RyanWantsToCry, get your facts straight. however, its a great song, and shouldn't be compared to another song that makes the same references. anyone who hasn't bought this cd (testing superstition) should pick it up.
