feeling the time peel away at my life again. as memories combine, not sure where i've never been. cuz it's the d in detroit which scares me to no end, i'll count to ten. when living this down makes so much sense.
we colide and onward we do fly. we colide and onward we do fly... onward until we meet again.
i kept yout picture just behind the eye those weeks when our distance grew. drove north where i found you waiting in des moines. thank god i'm not losing you and girl i hope youre not alone and sleep through this weather and girl i hope youre whole again, back home we'll sleep better.
we colide and onward we do fly. we colide and onward we do fly... onward until we meet again.
i kept yout picture just behind the eye those weeks when our distance grew. drove north where i found you waiting in des moines. thank god i'm not losing you and girl i hope youre not alone and sleep through this weather and girl i hope youre whole again, back home we'll sleep better.

    General Commentany song by the anniversary is of course going to be awesome and unique, but this is the first one that drew my attention to them. the title may throw some people off into thinking that its more of a goofy type song but actually its pretty deep

    General CommentThis is the first song I ever liked by The Anniversary!! It's still one of my favorites!! They kick ass in concert!! I love the title of it too :-) haha Of course they had to play this song at St. Andrew's in Detroit!! Anyways... it's a sad song, but I love it! Especially "I kept your picture just behind the eye those weeks when our distance grew"

    General Commentthis is great...just plain great. I really like the last part..."girl i hope youre not alone and sleep through this weather and girl i hope youre whole again, back home we'll sleep better." those are just great lyrics.

    General Commentyeh this song really is beautifully poetic and emo. the first 4 songs of this album just go together so well and i think this is a wonderful climax to that progression. of course the whole album is 10 deep and i love all the songs, but this little ditty about love and separation stands out.

    General CommentI love the Anniversary, but i recently heard that they broke up. I wish they would get their act together because they made amazing music. this is one of my favorite songs, and the first song i ever heard by them. I saw them in concert a couple years ago with dashboard confessional, and ben kweller...amazing show.
