Is it silly to think that this will never happen again?
But of course I'll call you tonight.
Did you know you missed my birthday?
The loneliest it gets is when the wind begins to chill.

And when I stand at the top of your old street,
The church top brings a stillness to me.
And I can't think of anything I'd rather do
Than have my heart broken by you.

Could we be saved by inventions and hopes?
Cause I'm not all right.
The night seems to swallow me whole
And spits out second guessing.

I remember ever since that first day that I saw you on the street.
I've always wanted you in the worst way, but now I can't compete.
And I'm so... and you're so... we're both so all fucked up.
I don't know but what to do.

It just makes me want to scream.
Isn't it about time that we try and get it right.
'Cause I can't sleep on no more floors
And I can't stay up no more nights.

I'd like to know what's going on.
Could you please pick up the phone?
I started one million letters to you
But I couldn't finish any of them...

Dave's alright.
He's doing fine.

    This is such an incredible song! You can really tell that early Saves the Day drew influence straight from these guys. They're both from Jersey, go figure.

    "i started a million letters to you but i couldn't finish any of them..."

    this is one of my all-time favorite songs. "i can't think of anything i'd rather do than have my heart broken by you!" that is heartbreaking. and lifetime totally got ripped off in saves the day's first album. and they got ragged hardddd for it. when i saw them, people were shouting "play 25 cent giraffes and rodeo clown!"

    i think that saves the day even has a line in one of their songs where he says "let the night swollow us whole"... i think it's from firefly or something. i don't know but i'm pretty sure they used that.
