All this time away from you
with you would be better
All those days of summer fun
I missed you more than ever

Absence makes the heart grow
withered
but fonder still
You know I never will stay silent

It was a big mistake to let me
have my way in the first place
It was a big mistake to let me
memorize your face

I'm jealous of you moon
tonight you get to see her
alone beneath the stars and everything I fear
All my strength was in her eyes
and everyday I get weaker
but stronger when
I think of how we never sat silent

It was a big mistake to let me
have my way in the first place
It was a big mistake to let me
memorize your face

    General Commentabsence makes the heart grow weathered, but fonder still, you know i never will stay silent.

    and then:
    all my strength was in her (your?) eyes
    and every day i get weaker

    I'm jealous of you moon tonight you get to see her alone beneath the stars and everything I fear
    all my strengthen was tranquilized
    and everyday I get weaker but stronger when
    I think of how we never sat silent

    General Commentand im still fuzzy about the strength part
    wether it's in your eyes
    or tranqulized
    in your eyes makes more sense tho

    General Commenti think it's about a relationship.
    they broke up, and he's saying, you shouldn't have even let us date or whatever they did, because it only made it harder for me to forget you.
    i love "i think of how we never sat silent" - they always had things to talk about and it wasn't ever awkward or anything. so even though he grows weak that they're apart, he's happy that their relationship was good.
