I've heard in time it gets better
I've been waiting forever
I'll say goodbye for the last time
Only this time I'll mean it

My fingers ache from clenching this fist
My eyes still burn
I'm pouring my heart through these
Telephone wires
I'm getting the notion that you've
become tired
that you've become tired

Sleep forces itself on me
Escaping reality

You run your legs take you so far
You would always come running back
I won't be here this time
No not this time

I know where you'll be in September
No reason to visit
No reason to remember

    General CommentThis song is also SO good...Feeling Left Out is SUCH a good band! the lyrics are great, and in this song the lyrics work whether you're in a long distance relationship or even a regular relationship...it's so rad.
    [its also "no NEED to remember" not "no reason" =) ]

    General CommentI say goodbye, because you've become so tired. Maybe, one of these times, I really won't be here. Would you care if I wasn't?
    L.O.C: 'I'm pouring my heart through these telephone wires.'

    General Commenti love these guys..this song is *so* good...so relatable too. Feeling so helpless and hopeless, and only a telephone to communicate it with...

    General CommentSo pure. Emotion pours out with:
    "I'm pouring my heart through these telephone wires
    I'm getting the notion that you've become tired."
