There's something about long stretches on snowy highways
And staying on the track
I know I said I would not leave 'til Friday
And now I'm taking it back

'Cause if you must keep breathing
Then I must be leaving
'Cause you and I would be perfect
In another life

Ohio never seemed so romantic
Until I left the place
I'd been waiting for Graham Greene to come and speak to me
Since last I saw your face

If you won't stop breathing
Then I won't stop leaving
Because you and I would be perfect
In another life

I'll never miss you too much 'cause that smile
Well you know it haunts
And even if I don't see you for quite a while
It will be sooner than I want
It will be sooner than I want
Anything would be sooner..

If you can't stop breathing
Then I can't stop leaving
Because you and I would be perfect
In another life
In another life
I'd never want another life
In another life
