My heart resides in a single time
A single moment, a single line
A single word with a single meaning
A single dream that's still worth dreaming
A single chance in a single life
A single vision before my eyes
A single month, a single season
A million things but a single reason

Can you find the truth?
That's absent of you?

And there she lives on the coast of Carolina
I'd gladly drown to wash upon her shore

I'd sacrifice a hundred lives
For one last glance into your eyes
It's been a year since you said
I'm leaving
But in my mind it's still repeating
I held you close just to turn away
Convinced myself it'll be ok
Life choreographs a brilliant dance
With everything left up to chance

Can you find my use?
From all these things I choose?

    General CommentObviously about someone leaving and you missing them.

    It's such a pretty and mellow song. I also love the comparisons they make. like "I'd gladly drown to was upon her shore" and "i'd sacrifice a hundred lives for one last glance into your eyes."

    They're so pretty. and he never really outright says how much he loves and misses her,but you can really tell by the lyrics of song.

    Great song and lyrics, go listen
