I'll confess tonight your all thats on my mind
I know these roof top nights could last forever.
we watched the seasons change, we saw the distance pull us away,
from all we shared together.

Right now is all we have you better make this count
these are the moments i wish i could forget you.

I think back to the nights I looked into your bright green eyes and you said,
lets run away.
its 9am the sun wont rise for 3 more hours pacific time you said
lets run away.

I picked apart every word that you said
I dissected each sentence but kept coming up empty
the way you are leaves me counting the days
till the next time this distance will be a memory

Right now is all we have you better make this count
these are the moments i wish i could forget you.

I think back to the nights I looked into your bright green eyes and you said,
lets run away.
its 9am the sun wont rise for 3 more hours pacific time you said
lets run away.

where have you been

I think back to the nights I looked into your bright green eyes and you said,
lets run away.
its 9am the sun wont rise for 3 more hours pacific time you said
lets run away

    General CommentOuch, no comments?
    This song is the definition of amazing.

    I think basically he's thinking about his time spent in a past relationship and he felt about it.

    Song MeaningI live in California so when he says "its 9am the sun wont rise for 3 more hours pacific time" I was a bit confused b/c the sun rises around 6 or 6:30am. Then I found out they are from Virgina which is 3 hours ahead so it all made sense. Great song by the way, love it!
