This is a decision that I know full well I made
I remind myself as I'm walking up to your gate
and through the wire and diamonds I can see your shape
you're fumbling around with your keys
You say we can sit and stay but I'm having trouble keeping up with you pleasantries
don't you find them unsettling, can we go walking?

That's probably a good idea; yeah It's probably a good idea

'Cause I don't want to fall in love with you again
I'm so afraid I'm capable of it
And after time I can't accept you're still the song on my breath
You're not easy to forget

Moving in rhythm, footsteps aligned
I'm doing okay 'till your arm brushes mine and then I panic
I thought I figured it out,but I'm taken aback
as we pass the closing stores and lit up cafes
there are so many of them these days; so many strangers.
They're walking around in our place, in our place

And suddenly it's all unclear; yeah suddenly it's all unclear
Yeah this probably was a bad idea; yeah this probably was a bad idea

'Cause I don't want to fall in love with you again
I'm so afraid I'm capable of it
And after time I can't accept you're still the song on my breath
You're not easy to forget

We used to own these streets, head to head, you spinning me
And now we say that we were young, and what we had has come and gone
We used to own these streets, head to head, you spinning me

Your back's against a concrete wall
your body buzzing on the intercom, the intercom, the intercom, the intercom
We woke the neighbors, it's no wonder they hate us, on every single floor

    General Commentum. how is it possible that no one has commented on this?! it's one of the most beautiful songs i've ever heard.

    the narrative is an extremely well-kept secret. i always wonder why and how this band continues to stay relatively unknown, because they definitely have what it takes to 'make it big'. and they do deserve to, but a part of me still wouldn't want that.

    My OpinionProbably the best song on the album. Possibly the best song they've written.

    MemoryThis song reminds me of my first love. I will forever think of him as the one that got away. Even after everything, I still felt him when he was around, like a hum of electricity. I think if the timing was better for us, life would of led us both down the same path.
