take away, this pain inside--i cant feel my face,
words cant describe, so far away, so far--that i
can't go to sleep, the way that i feel tonight.

im fazed by days--mocked by all, and i begin to
see what we are, and now, i know--there's no way
i can sleep, the way that i feel, tonight.

(this cant keep us apart)

and i would work until my hands bleed to feed you,
because you're my well, that i drink from--and toss
my wishes into. you're the five dollars i found in
my pocket i never knew i had--i didn't know there
were people in the world like you--but i guess,
that's what tears are for.

(this cant keep us apart)

i stay awake, and think about you--holding on to
these dreams--and why, i guess--i may as well sleep,
the way that i feel tonight.

this cant keep us apart.

    General CommentThat bridge is beautiful lyrically... makes me love Gary even more. "And I would work until my hands bleed to feed you, because you're the well that I drink from and toss all of my wishes in." Genius.
