I take a walk down to the shore
And I wonder how much longer ill sustain these steps

Its been a month since I’ve been gone
And its been a month too long since you have graced me with your presence

I smell your scent on every single shirt I wear
I find pieces of your hair stuck to my suitcase

I tried to call but the reception here is weak
And it’ll still be 3 more weeks till I get home

I hope your waiting by the door when I get home
I don’t want anyone to see me here alone
It’s not enough to say I think about you now
But that was all I had
But that was all I had

I walked the boards alone tonight
And tried to fill this empty space inside my chest
I took Atlantic home tonight
And every neon light inside spells out your name

And every morning that I wake
I make a point to check the date in case I slept an extra day
I cross many numbers out, but every time I count the days there so much more


I hope your waiting by the door when I get home
I don’t want anyone to see me here alone
It’s not enough to say I think about you now
But that was all I had
But that was all …

I hope your waiting by the door when I get home
I don’t want anyone to see me here alone
It’s not enough to say I think about you now
But that was all I had
But that was all I had

    General CommentOops, but I think the lyrics are "I took Atlantic home tonight and every neon light and sign spells out your name"

    General CommentIdk, my Friend Sara was telling me about him, and I just laughed at his last name, And I guess he stayed with her friend Flavius from her old school, so she showed me him and all I do is put this song on replay. This song is so amazing, His voice is perfect, He's seriously the Next Bright Eyes. I adore this song.
