im writing you this letter because i dont know what else to do.
stretch my arms out to a photograph that never reaches back to touch my arms.
forever and a day is all i have to offer you.
forever and a day i'll wait right here for your return.
and i'll be staring at this silent phone and know this is tearing me apart - when are you coming home?
This is why i raise my hand to greet the sun each day.
place my hand upon my heart to hear it beat your name. over and over.
forever and a day forever and a day is all i have to offer you.
forever and a day i'll wait right here for your return.
you hold my heart now hold my hand hold me anyway you can my life is in your hands
because i ran for miles and miles and miles i'd run for days to see you smile, just to see you smile.
be sure to close my eyes before you leave tonight.
you hold my heart now hold my hand hold me anyway you can
my life is in your hands
forever and a day. forever and a day.

    General CommentThis song means so much...to me, he lost his love and just wants her back adn the ending " be sure to close my eyes before you leave tonight" is him sayin to kiss him before she goes, because when you kiss you ussually close your eyes. this is such an amazing song. and INside is a great band.

    Amazingly, i know someone who went to school with the lead singer, so i can get info if i need to, so ask!

    one mistake though .. " place my hand apon my heart to heart it beat your name, over and over..then it stops" he whispers "then it stops" afterward.
