lyrics

I won't lie, no, I haven't been by
It's a fantasy of mine
To unlatch your gate on a bright Spring day
and stroll up and down the lines

I've waited a while, a while too long
To make that connection
Acting like I don't see the seasons pass
Or the spread of this infection

They tell me it was meant to happen that way
But I won't listen to a word they say

Where does the comfort come from
When I know time's not on our side,
and I can't with good conscience say I tried?

When I think of you, I always think about how
God, it might be nice
If the last words that you ever said to me
Weren't "Thanks for the advice."

It was meant to happen
That's what they all say
I never wanted to turn out this way

Where does the comfort come from
When I know time's not on our side,
and I can't with good conscience say I tried?

If I could talk to ghosts,
I'd never leave you be.
You're the only spirit
I would ever choose to see
And every single hour
I wonder where you are
I hope that you are comfortable
I hope you can see stars

If it was meant to happen
If that's what they say
How much longer will I feel this way?

Where does the comfort come from
When I know time's not on our side,
and I can't with good conscience say I tried?
No, I can't with good conscience say I tried.
