moving in slow like the smoke
from your cigarette
every step closer's a step
that we both will regret
keeping a tally but who can keep track?
your overreacting is taking me back
to a time better left alone

holding on to the phone
holding on to this glass
holding on to the memory of what didn't last
waiting for betters words; they'll never come
so dry your eyes, it's better now it's done

keep a tight grip like a child
holding onto a swing set
waiting and hoping to find what i can't figure out yet
please don't, unless this is something you mean
another nightmare instead of a dream
better left alone

holding on to the phone
holding on to this glass
holding on to the memory of what didn't last
waiting for betters words; they'll never come
so dry your eyes
holding on to the phone
holding on to this glass
holding on to the memory of what didn't last
waiting for betters words; they'll never come
so dry your eyes, it's better now it's done

i never lost so much
i never lost so much
i never lost so much

holding on to the phone
holding on to this glass
holding on to the memory of what didn't last
waiting for better words; they'll never come
so dry your eyes
holding on to the phone
holding on to this glass
holding on to the memory of what didn't last
waiting for betters words; they'll never come
so dry your eyes, it's better now it's done

    General Commenti personally don't like the songs that are completely sang by michelle. the lyrics are amazing, but i just don't like listening to a girls voice on their songs. maybe it is something that you have to listen to a few times and it grows on you? we'll see...

    General Commentagain i think this song is about adam...i think its her way of venting out against him.....maybe that she felt more for him than he did for her....

    and personally i think michelles solo vocals are amazing..i think its perfect for the kinda sound straylight run has...i love her voice..its almost tranquil.

    General CommentIt could be about Adam, but it could be about any relationship. Who knows? *shrugs*

    General CommentHas anyone read the latest ap magazine (November 04)? On the article about SLR, John says that supposedly people try to make connections to adam from TBS on their music and that those connections are just not there. So i dont think any songs are about adam or tbs.

    General Commentim with kid emo on this i mean the michelle songs are okay and just that.. nothing fantastic..i really try not to relate this album or any of their songs to TBS because it just seems like everyone thinks they are..just a thought: maybe they WANT you to think that but its actually not about it at all

    General CommentAlso get a Cardigan's vibe from her voice. Which is fine. I love the way Michelle sings, her voice is beautiful.

    General CommentHer voice is good and all, but don't forget the music in this song is awesome! The strings, the guitar, the way it all reaches climax towards the end.. just wonderful
