Your eyes they do deceive you
in my own I can ‘t believe you
but I don’t care
I don’t care that I’m nowhere near you
through the receiver
I can still hear you
in your voice I can hear you
wouldn’t look at me dear
if I were there you wouldn’t look into my eyes

it’s dangerous for us to keep on writing each other

and I don’t care
I don’t care when you drive so far away
when you drive so far today into the sun
you’ve gotta’ run
you can stay one more day
I can show you how c’mon babe
just a day
you can’t leave me now

it’s dangerous for us to keep on writing each other

when we both have another
how can you sin in your skin
you’re so thin
you’re so young and so numb
a perfect one
a perfect stare
but you’re so barely there
I would share but I don’t even care
if it was fate to stay in contact
could you wait until I got back
it’s too late to step back
could you wait until I got back

it’s dangerous for us to keep on writing each other
when we both have another

    General CommentSo the writer is talking about a girl who is constantly moving away and leaving, always running away from her problems. She sees things the wrong way, maybe as if they can't be fixed and she has to always move on. Even though this is the case, he still wants her.

    And it's dangerous for them to keep on writing because well, it goes against everything she's ever been, and in the end if she can't change and learn to deal with her problems instead of running away then the writer will be deeply hurt in the end.

    General CommentThis is the first song I heard by these guys in NYC, opening for MSI, besides their cover of Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us Apart.
    I bought their CD, asked for their autograph, and they seemed WAY surprised.

    General Commentif you ever heard fbbs first cd.. The setting sun and its satelites, you realize the whole cd is about one girl. This cd is really cool because its a continuation of their relationship. The girl, Chris, the lead singer was in love with, moved away to Califonia.. I think its this song is about how there is still something there between them and constand contact.
