If you insist on pictures of shorelines
then i insist on pages of your lines meant for me,
to be sent to me.

Remember watching the storms from the lifeguard stand.
Remember feeling the tingling in my fingertips
when I touched your lips.

And I recall how you sat on the same side of me,
it always seemed that you'd always be on my side.
You're my best side.

And it's early June, so the sand's still dry,
and you have got the boldest eyes,
and I can't help but think it's right,
that inside you it's me I'll find.
And I'm still waiting.

And it's early June, so the sand's still dry,
and the storm off shore is not far behind.
And I'm still waiting.

And sometimes you don't say a thing for a long while.
And the ships off shore hold stories that we'd make.
And sometimes we are held at bay by these miles.
But less of you is more than I can take.

And the moments that we've shared could last a lifetime.
And the faith I have in us will keep you near.
And several of these miles placed in between us
mean several of these words being sent by mail.
I hope this letter finds you well.

    General CommentWhat a deep, meaningful song, often coined by the lyrical master, Chris Carraba...if i could only have a slice of his lyrical talent...*sigh*

    General Commentthis is such an amazing song...not surprising, its commin from an amazing band. it's songs and bands like these that make me wonder why not too many people have heard of them! im really into the emo-puck stuff, and i don't understand why its not extremely popular like all the other rock. i dunno, just something to think about... :oP

    General CommentMaybe it's better that way. Well i see it like this, only a few (since the world is big) get to be apart of this phenomina of music and powerful lyrics you should be happy. and why did he (Chris) switch bands neways?

    General CommentChris switched bands because he was tired of rockin out. He wanted to show his softer side with Dashboard Confessional. If you like FSF then you would probably lilke dashboard, check him out if u havent

    General Commentchris is an amazing artist and an incredible lyricist who is going to make something he loves to do something that can support him. the new singer is absolutely incredible, and further seems forever will rock on. as for this song, i don't know if fsf will ever reach a level like this again, but i hope both dashboard and fsf excel in the future.

    General Commentin my opinion, both DC and FSF rock, either one cuz each represents a different point of music. DC-deep, sweet, and something to play on a date, while FSF-deep, somthing you can dance too, and awesome for a party!!
