How fast can you have your bags packed?
I'm ready to blow this town.

And this feeling is getting too hard to explain. It seems like months since you and I have been away from each other's arms and it's only been days. And I count down second til you plan to save me, from this feeling I feel. It certainly made me, you know it certainly made me too upset to describe how when I close my eyes, you're sitting right beside me on this bed here tonight.

And all I have to say is, how fast can you have your bags packed? I'm ready to blow this town. Your friendships, well that's important. I'm ready to be let down. Well one thing between road signs and street lights, is where I shut my eyes to the world outside; Just another thought of you and I.

I'm so mad that I never got to say goodbye. And all I can do, is sit here and wonder why. Why you were taken from my life. But as I count down, seconds til I see you again. I've got our memories in my head. And I just can't seem to understand;How when I looked into your eyes, I could always realize that you and I could of be together for all time.

You know I have to say, How fast can you have your bags packed? I'm ready to blow this town. Your friendships, well that's important. I'm ready to be let down. Well one thing between road signs and street lights, is where I shut my eyes to the world outside; Just another thought of you and I.

Last night I had this dream, it was the most amazing thing cause there we were standing side by side despite the past twelve months. It could all be wishful thinking, but you know I prayed to God "I wanna live forever in this moment, and never have to wake up."

How fast can you have your bags packed? I'm ready to blow this town. Your friendships, well that's important. I'm ready to be let down. Well one thing between road signs and street lights, is where I shut my eyes to the world outside; Just another thought of you and I.

    General CommentDoes anyone know if this song was written before or after Dana's death?

    Because it sounds a lot like it's about her. "I'm so mad that I never got to say goodbye. And all I can do is sit here and wonder why you were taken from my life." And especially the verse starting with "Last night I had this dream.."

    I love this though. :] Shane's voice is amazing.
    Some of the lyrics sound wrong though, but that's probably because I'm listening to a live version.

    Amazing song though.

    I'm ready to blow this town

    'Cause this feeling is getting too hard to explain
    And when it seems like months that you and I have been away from each other's arms, it's only been days
    And I, I count down seconds 'til these plane rides will save me
    From a feeling I feel that's certainly made me, oh, you know it's certainly made me
    Too upset to describe how when I close my eyes
    You're sitting right beside me on this bed here tonight
    You know I'd have to say to you

    How fast can you have your bags packed?
    I'm ready to blow this town.
    If friendships are less important, I'm going to feel let down
    This one thing between road signs and street lights when I shut my eyes to the world outside
    It's just another thought of you and I

    I'm so mad that I never got to say goodbye
    And all I can do is sit here and wonder why you were taken from my life
    And as I, I count down seconds 'til I see you again
    I got our memories in my head
    And I just can't seem to understand (somehow I understand)
    How when I looked into your eyes
    I could always realize
    that you and I could have been together for all time
    You know I'd have to say to you

    So how fast can you have your bags packed?
    I'm ready to blow this town
    If friendships are less important, I'm going to feel let down
    'Cause one thing between road signs and street lights when I shut my eyes to the world outside
    It's just another thought of you and I

    Last night, I had this dream
    It was the most amazing thing
    There we were, standing side by side
    Just like the past twelve months
    And in a sea of wishful thinking (?)
    You know I pray to God
    I might spend forever in this moment and never have to wake up

    How fast can you have your bags packed?
    I'm ready to blow this town
    If friendships are less important, I'm going to feel let down
    'Cause one thing between road signs and street lights when I shut my eyes to the world outside
    It's just another thought of you and I
    (background: "To feel that touch again...")

    So we'll blame it on learning
    It gets harder with time
    But even with distance
    Well, I know that true love will survive
    (x2)

    I love this song, and I believe it was written right after Dana's death.

    General CommentI love this song.. the lyrics are amazing.

    "How fast can you have your bags packed? I'm ready to blow this town"

    "When I shut my eyes to the world outside, it's just another thought of you and I"

    "You know I pray to God I might spend forever in this moment and never have to wake up"
