i call you up by the lamplight
confess to you like a sister
not even an image of you for company
i would sit there for hours
waiting for you to finish
but you're mountains and rivers away from me now

but you know your power

and you turn it on
like you done it all before
you pull away
just when you know that i need you more
and you're so laid back
when you twist me and i crack
but there¹s a moment when distance is done
when we are one
when we are one

i have one vivid memory
of meeting you in the summer
you were not very much younger than you are
you sing to me like a siren
come and make me your prisoner
'cause i know you're a friend and a foe to me now

but you know your power

and you turn it on
like you done it all before
you pull away
just when you know that i need you more
and you're so laid back
when you twist me and i crack
there's a moment when distance is done
when we are one

when we're one
there's a moment when distance is done

    General CommentIt gives you that odd sensation as though you're walking in Autumn, sky as gray, like you're so depressed yet you just swell up with love and think, damn this world isn't as bad as everyone thinks. That's how it makes me feel anyways X]
