my heart skipped a beat that night before we said goodbye. did you catch it? please say you caught it. as i looked in your eyes, i grabbed every sigh. please don’t forget to breathe because it’s killing me. the moon was gone for hours when we were winding down. we should have stayed up longer, but your eyes were tired. i know. please understand that i’ll be back. if you’re still around, that’s where i’ll be. you have my thoughts and you have my words, but the road has my contempt. pavement hisses me to sleep as we drive away. the hardest part was touching your face and knowing i had to let go. chalk another mile to the board of separation. strange towns make the best of my sickness when the cure’s so far away. it seems so sad, but time’s not flying tonight. wish that i could catch a shooting star home right now, but we’re moving too fast can’t slow down. no one cares just how i feel. your sleep time twitches shake the world and make sandmen sing, settle nerves and tell me you’re dreaming. there’s still some time to think.
