We've got forever
Slipping through our hands
We've got more time
To never understand

Falling footsteps
Weighing heavy on me

Behind darkness
Beneath candles
Whispers waltz
Around our dreams

The shortest distance
Between two points
Is a line
From me to you

Feet turning black
Is this the path we must walk?
No turning back
Wish I could just hear you talk

Can something like this be pulled
From under our feet?
Leaving our skin
And burning coals to meet

Tell me now

The shortest distance
Between two points
Is a line
From me to you

    My InterpretationFucked up as it sounds, I get the image of the person being in the process of killing himself/herself to join the person s/he is referring to in death via overdosing.

    General CommentI am 99% sure it is this:

    The shortest distance
    Between two points
    Is a lie
    From me to you

    But looking online, everyone says it is how it is in the current lyrics... am I wrong?

    My OpinionYeah, I think you're right about the lyrics heskey, but the other way makes perfect sense. Still...

    General CommentMight just be the romantic in me, but I totally thought she was saying "The shortest distance between two points is LOVE, from me to you."
