I'll quote a clever line like hope,
I'll take the final words you wrote,
To make them feel like bliss,
As always as I'll take the praise,
I have a way with making things,
Scripted like a song that makes you sting,

I need you here with me,
So here's a heart to heart,
On the back of postcards sent from California,
Remember when I said,
Just stay what you are,
I know you hate the feeling when I walk away,
When I'm without you I'm not the man that I know I can be,
Because you're not here with me,

You can break my heart open,
And ruin my epic ending,
Your hand like a noose around my neck,
But the next time you say,
Promise me, I'll make,
One for myself to always stay (what I am)

I need you here with me,
So here's a heart to heart,
On the back of postcards sent from California,
When I'm without you I'm not the man that I know I can be,
Because you're not here with me,

I need you here with me,
So here's a heart to heart,
On the back of postcards sent from California,
When I'm without you I'm not the man that I know I can be,

Remember when I said,
Just stay what you are,
I know you hate the feeling when I walk away,
When I'm without you I'm not the man that I know I can be,
Because you're not here with me,

    General CommentEasily my second favorite Amber Pacific song. I love the drumline in the beginning. Yeah and pretty much this is just a song about long distance relationships, but it's just so upbeat.

    General CommentI freaking love this song; makes me look forward to a trip I may take to Cali. ;]
    They're just talking about how someone is so far, and they want to speak with them, and how he's just lost without her.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song of theirs and I love the "Your hand like a noose around my neck," because it is like this long distance thing is killing me.

    General Commentso basically. Amber Pacific is great.

    i think this song is [obviously] about a long distance relationship [When I'm without you I'm not the man that I know I can be,
    Because you're not here with me,] and its pretty much killing him.. [You can break my heart open,
    And ruin my epic ending,
    Your hand like a noose around my neck,]

    every time they leave each other it breaks his heart.

    best verse ever
