say the mile we just ran stretches another fifty-five
say it turns out i can't go with you all the way to the other side
what'll happen when it doesn't work out the way that you had it all planned?
what'll happen if i take my own time and you still don't understand?

in the days passing through my lover called, said i'm here to stay
down at the shoreline, we said we'd find another way

in the streetlamps it's appearing, skies mercury blue
you're flying closer towards me in the heat of the moon
got a lapse of judgement with the waves all tumbling through
with the houses and the windows in your eyes meeting me, washed anew

in the days passing through my lover called, said i'm here to stay
down at the shoreline, we said we'll find another way

it's hard to say where we'll be a year from now
i know we'll try, but i think we'll still fail somehow
we're just trying to be better people
i don't think i'm a better person
i don't think i'm a better person with, or without, you around.

in the days passing through my lover called, said i'm here to stay
down at the shoreline, we said we'll find another way
