You said you hated California
Waves were always crashing down.
How would one ever expect to
Pick two lives up off the ground?
If the one thing that they want
Is always a tad bit out of reach.
You’re a lonely soul with a broken heart
Clinging to your silent reverie.
I wonder if she’s in there still
Where else would she go?
The miles that lie between us
Are the only truths we’ve told.
How is something so familiar
The only thing you’ve never seen?
It makes all the difference in the world -
Now one plus two make three.
How much time do we really have
Before they leave us six below?
How much are we willing to give up
Before we lose all control?
You said you’d love me regardless.
Then it finally occurred to me
That word meant heedless,
To treat carelessly.
If the only thing between us
Are a few old memories,
Then why after all this time
Do you have so much control over me?
How do I pretend the distance
Doesn’t change a thing?
When a life is laying on the line,
Would you still fight for you and me?
