"Mission Bells" as written by Michael Anthony Viola, Matt Nathanson and Sam Hollander....
I had a dream you died
And I just wanna be with you tonight
Mission bells were ringing
Somewhere higher
I let you get away
I let you get away

What kind of man misunderstands
A woman like you?
She's her in black and white
It's 5 am and the phonebook says
That you're not alone
In the cold grey morning light
The only one that's left to trust
My faithless heart wasted us

I had a dream you died
And I just wanna be with you tonight
Mission bells were ringing
Somewhere higher
I let you get away
I let you get away

What kind of fool thinks love's a prison
Or a handicap
Only says goodbye
Sinking fast in the rocky waters of alcatraz
His friends said suicide
The only one that's left to trust
My faithless heart wasted us

I had a dream you died
And I just wanna be with you tonight
Mission bells were ringing
Somewhere higher
I let you get away
I let you get away

I'm the end of a hitchcock movie
A little dark and a lot confusing
I'm the last of the worst pretenders
So lost, so lost in love
I'm the end of a hitchcock movie
A little dark and a lot confusing
I'm the last of the worst pretenders
So lost, so lost in love

I had a dream you died
And I just wanna be with you tonight
Mission bells were ringing
Somewhere higher
I let you get away
I let you get away
So lost, so lost, in love
So lost, so lost, in love

    General CommentIt sounds like this man is reaching out to the last person he trusted, a woman. He wants to be with her but she obviously married.
