Tonight I'll stay awake long enough to stop breathing
and I wonder how long it will take before I pass out drunk off night skies
and lying on hills with wet grass below and blue black above-
I will carry all the weights tonight
Because I keep remembering the day that you said you might go crazy
if you spent one more minute with me
I've been thinking about those days and I don't know-
is one more minute going to kill you now?
Stop before I say too much-
so now I've been alone and it's been going but tomorrow might not come
if I don't let it so don't forget the mornings that we spent deep inside our heads
staring at blank walls 'cause that's what counts
and I don't know but I'm trying to let you go
but I can't cut so well these strings I have around my neck
and I'm trying to let you know that I'm doing this by myself-
so don't forget we sent letters to ourselves without words
and it was just to remember those days that we spent in our heads.

    General Commentthis song is so fucking surreal. every time i hear this song, something comes over me and makes me apprecciate life more and just look at relationships differently. i saw them about a month or two ago and chris performed this song in his acoustic set. it wa amazing.

    General CommentI really like this song. It makes you think that the girl is a real bitch. Chris writes so beautifully, I wish that I was as good as him. He just tells it like it is and thats what makes Saves the Day so amazing.
