I went to sleep thinking about you
And I woke up just the same
You made it so hard for me to close my eyes
Don’t worry, babe, this will be alright in the end
And I’ll be your everything

So we’ll both tell ourselves
That this for the best
But I’m depending on you to lead me through
So try to stop those hands
You’re riding down my neck
You touch, I tremble
You never were one to play fair

These past four walls won’t be the only thing that’s keeping me from you
This distance could never hold this back (I need you)
So let’s just take this time
And we’ll use this for reflection
And I’ll see you in three days
And you’ll think of me when you’re next to him

Don’t mind my gasping
It’s just so much harder to breathe when you’re near
You made it so hard for me to learn through my eyes
Don’t mind my asking but
Could I trouble you, miss, for a smile?
Just grant me one last wish with a kiss
It’s what my dreams are made of

So we’ll both tell ourselves
That this for the best
But I’m depending on you to lead me through
So try to stop those hands
You’re riding down my neck
You touch, I tremble
You never were one to play fair

These past four walls won’t be the only thing that’s keeping me from you
This distance could never hold this back (I need you)
So let’s just take this time
And we’ll use this for reflection
And I’ll see you in three days
And you’ll think of me when you’re next to him

So here we are again
In the same situation
I’m screaming at the top of my lungs
And you’re not saying a word
Did you just mean what you said?
Why can’t you just mean what you said
When you said “No one can love you like me”?

These past four walls won’t be the only thing that’s keeping me from you
This distance could never hold this back (I need you)
So let’s just take this time
And we’ll use this for reflection
And I’ll see you in three days
And you’ll think of me when you’re next to him

(We could have been beautiful)
These past four walls won’t be the only thing (We could have been beautiful)
That’s keeping me from you (We could have been beautiful)
This distance could never hold this back (I need you)
So let’s just take this time (We could have been beautiful)
And we’ll use this for reflection (We could have been beautiful)
And I’ll see you in three days
And you’ll think of me when you’re next to him

    Lyric CorrectionI went to sleep thinking about you
    And I woke up just the same
    You made it so hard for me
    To close my eyes

    Don't worry babe
    This will be alright
    In the end
    And I'll be your everything

    So we'll go tell ourselves
    That this is for the best
    But I'm depending on you
    To lead me through

    So try to stop those hands
    You're riding down my neck
    You touch, I tremble
    You never were one to play fair

    These past four walls won't be the only thing thats keeping me from you
    This distance could never hold this back (I need you)
    So lets just take this time and
    We'll use it for reflection
    And I'll see you in 3 days and
    You'll think of me when you're next to him

    Don't mind my gasping its just so much harder to breathe when you're near
    You made it so hard for me to learn through my eyes
    Don't mind my asking but could it trouble you miss for a smile?
    So grant me one last wish with a kiss

    Did you just say what you mean?
    Why can't you just mean what you said
    When you said
    No one could love you like me

    General CommentGreat song but I'm pretty sure the line "Don't mind my asking, but could I travel, you meant, for a smile?" should be "Don't mind my asking but could I trouble you Miss, for a smile?"

    General CommentYall are clueless.

    Jeremy got into the music biz because of a relationship that went downhill when he was 17. he wrote this song for the girl and burned the lyrics/chords after he made a shitty recording. 2 people heard it (himself and a friend i think) later down the road he professionally had it recorded for his own behalf. it got leaked and he was PISSED it was an important personal thing. It's regrettable that it was such a personal song because I'd be willing to say that this is there best slow song and I'd kill to hear it live. Anyhow, that's the legit story on the song. call bullshit if you want i know its the truth.

    My OpinionWell in my opinion I think what this song is about a friendship/relationship gone wrong where he/she, but I'm mainly gonna use he cause I'm a guy but i think where the guy wants to be back with that person, and if you listen carefully you think Jeremy sounds like Patrick Stump from Fall Out Boy and from the song "America's Suitehearts" but I think it's a beautiful song to anyone.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about being in a relationship with someone,when your heart is really somewhere else, and he's trying to reassure the other girl that everything will be alright soon.

    He has a girlfriend, she has a boyfriend, but they need eachother, and they've figured that out, but somethings not allowing that to happen.

    General CommentActually, this song was written by Jeremy McKinnon when he was 17, without ADTR.

    Its not off Homesick. It was his own personal song that someone leaked onto the internet.

    "FYI the "unreleased song" that "leaked" from "homesick" is not an ADTR song. it was my own personal song i wrote when i was 17. people suck." <-- From Jeremy's twitter page.
    Hes not too happy about it. Altho it is probably one of the best songs ive ever heard.

    General Commenti wish he would play this live. it shows his talent amazingly.
    "don't mind my gasping its just so much harder to breathe when you're near" & "Don't mind my asking but could i trouble you miss for a smile?" beautifully sung and wonderful lines <3
