Chase This Light, 5 minutes
Jimmy Eat World
You close your eyes and kiss your hand then you blow it
But it isn't meant for me, and I notice
If the choice was ours alone,
Then why'd we both choose letting go?
Does it end like this?
Time never had a chance to heal your heart
Just a number always counting down to a new start
If you always knew the truth
Then the world would spin around you
Are you dizzy yet?
Respectfully, so honestly I'm calling out
Do you hear the conversation we talk about?
I'll back away to the safety of a quiet house
If there's half a chance in this moment
When your eyes meet mine, we show it
All talk and not a lot to think, we were living dreams
And shame never crept close to our naked feet
If there's something left to lose
Then don't let me wear out my shoes
That I still walk in.
I tried, but it rang and rang; I called all night
On a pay phone, remember those from another life?
If everything I meant to you
You can't lick and seal then fold in two
Then I've been so blind.
Oh, oh take it all back, take your first, your last, your only
Oh, oh take it all back, take it all back
Everything you showed me
Oh, oh, this must be how it feels when the feelings goes
I told you as I haven't, I never felt this way
You said "I have this shot that stops my clock"
Baby it's okay
You said you'd never have regrets
Jesus is there someone yet who got that wish?
Did you get yours, babe?
