When you got back I professed to you but the feeling wasn't right
Never meant to cheapen it, your silence was just a fight
But no thank you for the pity kiss goodnight

Things were good again then I had to move back to the bay
I gave you a three week notice you let me out the next day
But I won't blame you for pushing away

And I won't forget what you had to tell me
But I can cheapen the feeling with the likeness to atoms colliding
In a hallow where my dark heart was hiding
Thanks for the moment but oh what fucking terrible timing
It's all about the timing
God dammit I guess we never had It,
I guess we never had It, we never had the timing

    General CommentCorrection: "Your silence was just a slight."

    Just a song about a promising romance that can't blossom due to factors in the two peoples' lives that won't allow them to "synch up", so to speak. There's some moving away and moving back happening.
