lyrics

This far into the country
The boundaries are barely defined
The last 10 years pass in 10 minutes
And here am I trying to make sense of just one time

A stalemate in communication
Just another way to say goodbye
A future script unwritten or unfinished
A life the length of a sigh

No matter what I do
I find you’re back in my head
There's no laughter or tears
So much left unsaid
Without your compass
I don't know where to next
Tell me what's left to expect
Nothing more nothing less
And to see you smile
I'd wait a thousand years
Another glimmer of hope
It's as far as it’s near
No sense of what’s real
Caught in another mess
Just one more chance
Nothing more nothing less

Nothing but darkness banging around my pockets
Whatever sunshine left it’s still bright in my heart
The whole universe collapses to this instant
We quarrel beautifully it’s a symphony set apart

A stalemate in communication
Just another way to say goodbye
A future script unwritten or unfinished
A life the length of a sigh

No matter what I do
I find you’re back in my head
There's no laughter or tears
So much left unsaid
Without your compass
I don't know where to next
Tell me what's left to expect
Nothing more nothing less
And to see you smile
I'd wait a thousand years
Another glimmer of hope
It's as far as it’s near
No sense of what’s real
Caught in another mess
Just one more chance
Nothing more nothing less

So this is how the story finally ends
I think of you as gone it’s better that way
The space between tomorrow stretches exhales
Without knowing the difference or the right words to say
