I wish I knew, what I could do
To make you stay, but I don't know
What I could say

In my mind, I can erase state lines
In my head, I can extend my bed
to 23rd, and Lexington

In my mind, I can erase state lines

We've been spoiled, but not equivalent to food
More like too much, of a good thing
Always goes bad
Always goes bad

The 24th, of a dying month
Kills a season, but it won't kill us
Hope these words, bring tears to your eyes
Because they bring, tears to mine

In my eyes, you're still the best prize
In my heart, it would take more than this city
To tear us apart, To tear us apart

In my mind, I can erase state lines

We've been spoiled, but not equivalent to food
More like too much, of a good thing
Always goes bad
Always goes bad
Hope these words bring tears to your eyes
Because these words bring tears to mine

It's me and you against the world
The story of a boy and a girl
You've seen me when I'm at my worst
And I'm sorry that's been most of the time
But I need you more than I need this air
I'll only breathe if you let me
I need you more than I need these words
I'd stop on a dime, if only to hear you say
That you love me.

    General CommentI remember when they let this album stream online...I recorded it on my four track and listened to it all and knew all the lyrics by the time I got to see them and get the CD.

    I love this album.
