"Within Your Reach" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
I could live without so much
I can die without a clue
Sun keeps risin' in the west
I keep on wakin' fully confused

I never seen no mountain
Never swam no sea
City got me drownin'
I guess it's up to me

I can't live without your touch [Repeat: x 2]

Cold without so much
Can die without a dream
Live without your touch
I'll die within your reach

Reach
Reach

I never seen no mountain
Never swam no sea
Drownin' in this city
Well, it's really up to me

I can't live without your touch [Repeat: x 3]

Die within your reach
Die within your reach
Die within your reach
Die within your reach

Reach
Die within your
Reach
Die within your
Reach

Reach... for the sky

    General Comment Personally, this is going to be the song I blast when I pack up my stuff in my house and ship off to college once I get out of this hell hole Junior College. Just reminds me of that type of song you take one last look around and set off to the next adventure.

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite Mats songs and was glad to see it in "Say Anything..." Personally, I'd prefer to use this song as my boombox serenade song instead of a Peter Gabriel song.

    "Sun keeps rising in the west
    I keep on waking fully confused"

    He is fully confused: the sun always rises in the east and sets in the west. :-)
