Here we are now in the backyard On the warm ground out at sundown
But in twelve days I'll be halfway
Cross the world, I'm too tired to be afraid

You've got green eyes, I had foresight
When I said we'd be good I was so right
If we lay here, spend every day here
Well our legs might take root and we'll grow dear

I made a promise to you

I'd protect you if I had to
So the bad parts never get through
From the outside into your life
We can try but we might have some hard nights

Now we can't speak 'neath the pine trees
And I swear that there's air but I can't breathe
I need your heat, I've got cold feet
It's the thought that still makes this so easy

I made a promise to you
That we'd still feel brand new
That we'd still feel something

She's not too fond of history
Hearing loud of abrasive speech
She's unique in the way she eats oh yeah she loves me
Why she does hell I cannot say
I can't seem to stay in one place
Always gone and I'm far away from the smile on her face

Was it something that I couldn't say?
Fast enough to get away
And though I tried to make a clean escape

You left me with an even break

And I think I saw myself in you
But I think you saw a proper fool
And I know we broke every rule
With everything we didn't do

I'll remember every day
If you remember every dumb mistake
That you made cause you were late
But its my fault I made you wait

In this city I cant speak
Well you know this place is killing me
And it's harder to believe
But it's hard enough to watch you leave
