stuck in a memory of us
it's so hard to know that we're worlds apart
and I was so wrong to think this would all be so easy
but trust me I'll be back for more
until then I'll close my eyes
and your past will be safe with me here

I dive into a world of fact and fiction
but I'm swimming in my own contradiction
in my fantasy you are here with me
and it makes my nights a little richer
I'm falling in love with a faded picture of you, my fantasy
you're here with me

you can say its alright
you can say you don't mind
it's killing me to be away from you
so you can say its alright
and you can say you don't mind
it's killing me to be away from your side

I'm done with hellos and goodbyes
I'm falling apart inside
I try to make you speak
but your beautiful, awkward silence falls on me

its killing me to be away from
you are the burning in my throat
a gentle wisp of smoke
that ever quickly floats past my face
then you're gone, and I wish it wasn't true

    General Commentive probably listened to this song *checks iTunes* 43++ times in the past two days. this song = my life. its about a long distance thing, whether it be a relationship or a soon-to-be or just being away from the one you love. its so tough and you dont know until you go through it. you just keep thinking that life is a waste without this person and you cant stand being alone. you hadn't realized how difficult it would actually be, but now you see that without them, there is a stinging ache in your heart. i just love the line "i try to make you speak, but your beautiful, awkward silence falls on me" because pretty much, however much you actually get to talk to this person, its not enough. and if they aren't as eager & willing, its hard to kill yourself over this person when they are doing alright without you. or at least they have more patience. i thought i was a patient person, and ive been okay. but with each growing day, 11 months off and on is way to long to be away from the person you used to see everyday. music soothes things, but also can be a reinforcer that makes you feel worse. but sometimes you just need a good cry....

    he'll be back.. eventually. rawr.
