Am I days or weeks or months too late
To tell you I fucked up, I made a mistake
Now that you're back from college is it like before
Cause I cant live without you anymore
I think I'll move to Richmond
And I'll do what I can

I miss your caked on make up and fake sun tan
I miss the way you lose things and finding them
It took me years to notice but today I know
That I will love you more than you will ever know
Know

Am I day or weeks or months too late
I should have known these things without the questioning
But through these weeks apart and through the telephones
I have come to notice what I've always known
I think I'll move to Richmond
And I'll do what I can

I miss your caked on make up and fake sun tan
I miss the way you lose things and finding them
It took me years to notice but today I know
That I will love you more than you will ever know
Know

So these keys will be the pencil and my thoughts will be the page
And instead of conversation, I'll put things that I cant say
As they're spinning through the universe and floating on the screen
I'll keep spinning through my history since I was 17

So these keys will be the pencil
And my thoughts will be the page
And instead of conversation
I'll play things that I cant say

As they're spinning through the universe
And falling on the screen
I'll keep spinning through my history
Since i was seventeen

And these keys will dance in rhythms
And my voice will slowly fade
But i've never been a singer
I just had to find a way

To convince you that i'm honest
And to tell you I was wrong
To convince you that I miss you
And that I miss your....

Caked on make up and fake sun tan
I miss the way you lose things and finding them
It took me years to notice but
I will love you more than you will ever

Caked on make up and fake sun tan
I miss the way you lose things and finding them
It took me years to notice but now I know
I will love you more than you will ever know

    General CommentThis song is kind of epic. The meaning is pretty obvious don't cha think?

    I'm trying to figure out how to play it on piano by ear, but I'm a guitarist by trade so it's a little tricky.
