If I told you that I
was thinking of moving east,
would you save a place for me?
I'll come home
because it's worse that I expected.

A place in my heart
for my home to the west
where we'll watch the same sunsets,
and when I doubt...
I'll look east and lock my heart
in a brass box to newfound mass.
I'm breaking off but this is my home.

I'd do anything for you,
give you the world if I could.
Is that what you want me to do?
These bridges and boundaries are bringing me closer to you.

    General Commenti like this version of this song more than the original version, but which ever version its still an awesome song. i like the piano in beginning of this version more than just the guitar in the older.

    General CommentI love this version of the song. The piano sounds wonderful. And the lyrics are so beautiful.

    "give you the world if I could.
    Is that what you want me to do?
    These bridges and boundaries are bringing me closer to you."

    I think that's my favorite line from any song...ever

    General CommentThis son is sad, but touching too...a heart in two places. I definately enjoy this version better. It's a lot mellower and it's got more of the signature GUK keyboarding.

    General CommentThis is one of the best GUK songs right next to "i'll catch you" Very mellow and deep. The slow mellow GUK stuff is probably its best.

    General CommentI like this version better than the first version. It's so mellow, and deep. I really like the mellow GUK stuff. It's the best, in my opinion. And this song just brings out that quality, same with "I'll Catch you."
