Awake, through the years it takes to see you
'Til I almost lose my mind
'Cause I'll never be alright
And I'm sorry you had to see this
But I'm such a mess
And I never could forget

I'm scared I'll miss the way we use to talk
And if its all forever lost dont wanna know
I'm scared that you're the one that got away
And I want you here with me
Tonight, will never come

I'm scared I'll miss the way we use to talk
And if its all forever lost, don't wanna know
I'm scared that you're the one that got away
And i want you here with me
Tonight, will never come

    General CommentThis song is so gorgeous, and i'm surprised that no one has commented it. To me, a girl that he is good friends with and loves is going away, but will be back in a few years. He didn't tell her his feelings, because he didn't want to ruin the friendship. He is now thinking 'i'm scared that you're the one that got away'.

    General Commentthis song isn't by dashboard confessional... i'm pretty sure it's by a local band from north carolina.
