four years later i still
watch you sleeping
dreaming of a place faraway that you could call home
not all that you'd hoped for
such disappointment
but i hope you plan to stick with me no matter what

i forgot to leave a breadcrumb trail
to show the way to the beginning
i forgot to notch the branches that point back to the start

but i still love you like the days we could only make out
on the way home on the side of ninety-six
and i still love you all the ways i did when i first said
i do love you

sixteen seasons past and i
join you dreaming
going to a place faraway that we'll call home
not all hope is lost yet
hearts, stars & rockets
to break & mend again, to light the way, and to take us there

i forgot to leave a breadcrumb trail
to show the way to the beginning
i forgot to notch the branches that point back to the start

but i still love you like the days we could only dream of
falling asleep together every single night
and i still love you all the ways i did when i first said
i do love you
(break it down)

looking for an answer to a simple question...
are you done with me?

because i still love you like the nights spent in your basement
falling out to modest mouse & sunny day
and i still love you all the ways i did when i first said
i do love you
i still love you like the days we could only make out
at the reststops at the side of ninety-six
and i still love you all the ways i did when i first said
i do love you
