I had a plan
That was built on thinking too long
Canadian winters
At home with your sisters
The romance was hard to ignore
You were beautiful
I was happy to fall
So happy to fall

I remember you searching
I thought you were searching
That's how I picked up the phone
Happy to hear you remembered the view
So glad to assume it was fate
I thought at the time it was clear
I thought at the time it was clear

So I stood at the station
With a plan and a pocket of poems
Heroically tragic
Bearded and blind with obsession
I'm a car without hope
Too close to the ditch to go far
I showed you my field
I said this is my field
But you weren't impressed

You said why are we here
Your motives are clear
In this room with a view
And so much of you
Is so far from here
It's so far from here
It's so far from here
It's so far from here
Oh my heart
It just fell apart
And I wished I could show you
The same view
Of you by the window and me
Feeling fine
And me just feeling fine
Yeah me just feeling fine

    General Commenti agree with tubesocks, i also think he had built up a wismicle romance between him and a girl, and about the realization that its not tangible. i love the desperation.

    General CommentNeil Halstead has a perfect vision of a life that would lead him to feel a sense of normalcy and possible happiness. But his vision quickly crumbles when the girl who is an incritcate of his hopeful vision says that his dream is meaningless to her. Neil is left trying to pick up the pieces of his shattered vision, realizing he can only dream of finding happiness for now.

    General CommentDamn that girl was cold. It really feels like she let his dream crumble at his feet in one sentence...

    General CommentI think there's a line missing from the lyrics. In the last stanza right after "my heart, it just fell apart", Neil sings "by the sound of your voice" before 'and i wished I could show you...". Just thought I'd add that. Beautiful, tremendous song. Timeless
