i took a chance
investing everything I had of me in you
and as of yet
it is unclear to me what being here will do
to me, 'cause you and I are miles apart
and i can be alright with that because

you smiled ever so slightly
as i held you tightly
it was just enough for me
to fall for you hopelessly
the morning i woke up
before one or both thought
much too heavily
about what it means to be happy

i took a walk
and then three trains
and it was raining on my head
and i forgot
every minute i had spent to get to you
and i, we shared a silence
closed our eyes and that is why
i came all the way

you smiled ever so slightly
as i held you tightly
it was just enough for me
to fall for you hopelessly
the morning i woke up
before one or both thought
much too heavily
about what it means to be happy

so what was lost
before my heart was yours
i think i found all i wanted and more
so come close
i'll make sure
we both know what we're for

you smiled ever so slightly
as i held you tightly
it was just enough for me
to fall for you hopelessly
the morning i woke up
before one or both thought
much too heavily
about what it means to be happy

    General Commentlove the chorus.. catchy as hell. definitely about a semi-long distance relationship where the two can only see each other sometimes, but when it happens it is definitely worth it.
