There's only so much juice
You can suck out of a fruit
And the color changes fast
When an apple's cut in half

Every letter ends somewhere
Better time its steps with care
I'll be the one who waits too long
Turns around and finds it gone

Choose the life you want to live
Give the love you want to give
Take the moment when it comes
Let it lead you let it run

Feel the moisture in the air
Feel her fingers through your hair
Don't be shy when asking to
Be that way (you always were meant to)

You say that life is long
You took the words
Out of my mind

Life is long, and the world is small
Our paths will cross some other time

Given shelter, blessed by rain
To our common unknown aim
Through the north side of the town
To the south where we laid down

All the floodlights but no stars
And the people without cars
Where I ask you without sound
Where you answer without words

Do them all as written down
When you close your eyes you find
You can prophesize the steps
You can visualize the maps

If you act upon it when
theres no trace of doubt within
When your heart is freshly stung
You cannot fail, you cannot act wrong

You say that life is long
You took the words
Out of my mind

Life is long, and the world is small
Our paths will cross some other time

You say that life is long
You took the words
Out of my mind

Life is long, and the world is small
Our paths will cross some other time

    My InterpretationI think is a song about a distance love relantionship or crush. Both of them really enjoy the company of each other, but know that right now they cant be together.

    Its about two lovers who live diferent lifestyles or life just cant bring them together, and that timing isnt helping them.

    But its also a song of hope, "say that life is long" and "our paths will cross some other time." . Showing that maybe in the future it will workout between them.

    MemoryThis is the song i like to hear when i think about a girl that i really love, she still has some feelings for me. But due to the fact i was away, things changed and we cant be together right now. But i still have hope that in a future we can still be together :)
