Can we make this last forever?
With every word we're growing distant,
And I feel as if I have to let you know...

It's growing old to see us torn by every choice that I have made,
And every instance you were right to write me off and move ahead,
And to think I let you down, and threw it all away,
I never meant to break it up, or make you feel this way,

It's getting colder through these walls that seem to big to break us now,
A perfect ending's still in mind though it seems our time is running out,
Just a call from you will make this go away,
I never felt this day would come, I'll never be the same,

Can we make this last forever?
(With every word you're growing distant)
And I feel as if I have to let you go(Let you go)
Can we make this time together?
(Seem as though it never started)
And it's hard to be the only one to know (To know)

Through opened eyes I sense a feeling pain, a black that lines your heart,
It's bleeding through just like the colors that I've seen right from the start,
And if I had the choice to do this all again,
Would you be inclined to notice it?
Or would you just pretend?

Can we make this last forever?
(With every word you're growing distant)
And I feel as if I have to let you go(Let you go)
Can we make this time together?
(Seem as though it never started)
And it's hard to be the only one to know (To know)

Remember how we used to be (how we used to be)
Remember how we used to be (how we used to be)

Can we make this last forever?
(With every word you're growing distant)
And I feel as if I have to let you go(Let you go)
Can we make this time together?
(Seem as though it never started)
And it's hard to be the only one to know (To know)

Can we make this last forever?
(With every word you're growing distant)
And I feel as if I have to let you go(Let you go)
Can we make this time together?
(Seem as though it never started)
And it's hard to be the only one to know (To know)

    General CommentCan we make this time together?
    Seem as though it never started
    does that mean that he wants to forget that anything ever happened or that he wants to try to start it again? or somethign completely different?

    General CommentI think this is just a falling out . He feels like he scewed up cause he knew better about the person . Imo ,He is taking up too much responsiblity..

    He is saying how they pretty much were following through a lie and he wants to start over with what they know now . Cause that would be the reality of it all and he is willing to move with what is ..

    He is also having problems with deciding to either move or not . A phone call would signify the person still caring . So he is hoping but knows as time goes on he just will have to let go .

    These two people have heald back about who they truely were and what they truely felt that an ending doesn't feel much like one at all . Just a missed oppertunity that couldve been good .

    It sounds like he is willing to work with it all and start again but that is only if she is willing . otherwise he just moves on etc .

    General CommentI love how it's just the lead singer in the beginning, with no instrumental or anything. :D
    One of my favorite Amber Pacific songs.
    Telling about one of those "dying relationships" and how he's wondering if they could mend it before anything falls apart completely.

    General CommentFor imnotwierdimunique, one of the members is from Yellowcard now. I think that he is saying that she has every right to not be with him, but he wants them to be together. He is appoligizing for what he did and he wants her to know that he is sorry, too.
