i made a list of everything i wanted to see before i left here.
i think i forgot to put you on it.
what would you say if i left without saying good bye.
i can imagine your face with a smile and a thought of "i'm glad."
maybe you'll get your wish. maybe your shooting star will crash down on you
and burn that wish into your skin.
so you'll show it with disgraceful pride that makes the hair on my arms stand up.
and i'll run from you. and i'll run to you. pull me in.
don't let me end what could be something so great that i would be blinded by its beauty.
please don't let me leave without saying good bye. please don't let me leave.

    General Commentjeeeeesus, no comments yet? such a beautiful song... my take on it is being on the verge of leaving, and at first being bitter towards someone - probably an ex-girlfriend, or the girl (space) friend who the narrator always "loved" - then realizing that when it comes down to it, being bitter isn't going to solve anything, and the narrator just gives in and asks the girl not to let him leave...and all of this happens in his head, of course, he never actually TELLS her how he feels.....sigh...

    excellent song, amazing band...
