I'm aAlways assuming the worst
But you're going on nonetheless
And there's nothing to cushion your heart
Let it fall

Letters from further away
Keep pulling me close to home
And there's something to cushion my callus size
And I know that you hope for
Long, good goodbyes
Embracing for forever
And falling in your eyes, in your eyes, your eyes

Pouring over photographs
I'm living in your letters
Breathe deeply from this envelope
It smells like you
And I can't be
Without that scent
It's filling me with
All you mean to me
To me

Continually failing these trials
But you stand by me nonetheless
And you won't let me sink
Though I'm begging you, I'm begging you

Phone calls from further away
And messages on my machine
But I don't ever tell you this distance seems terrible

And there's no need to test my heart
With useless space
These rows go on forever
There'll always be a place
For you
In my heart

So I'll hit the pavement
It's gotta be better
Than waiting
And pushing you far away
'Cause I'm scared
So I'll take my chances
And head on my way
Up there
'Cause turning to you
Is like falling in love when you're ten
