Just watching the DVD, smoking illegal weed
Getting high as two kites when we needed to breath
We'd used each other's edge just for the people to see
And stay up all night like when we needed to sleep
We'd go anywhere our minds would take us
And I'd say you beautiful without your make up
And you don't even need to worry about your weight 'cause
We can all be love the way that God made us
At times the only reason that we could break up
'Cause you would always tell me I'm away too much
Distance is relative to the time that it takes to get on a plane or make a mistake
So say it again
I met you when I a teen
But then you one as well
And I could play a guitar
Just like ringing a bell
Sometimes I wonder
In any other summer
Could you have been my part time lover to me
Listening to Stevie Wonder
Under the covers where we used to lay
And re-stacks is what the speakers play
I'll be on tour almost every day
When I home up in my flat is where we used to stay
And every weekend in the winter you'd be wearing my hoodie
With drawstrings pulled tight to keep your face from the cold
Taking day trips to the local where we'd eat on our own
'Cause every day when I away we'd only speak on the phone
Watching blue planet, creating new habits
Acting it's as if we two rabbits
And then you'd vanish
Back to the burrow with all the Celtics
I'd disappear, you'd call me selfish
I understand but I can't help it
I put my job over everything except
my family and friends
But you'll be in between forever so
I guess we'll have to take a step back
Overlook the situation 'cause
mixing business and feelings
will only lead to complications
And I'm not saying we should be taking a break
Just reevaluate quick before
we make a mistake and it's too late
So we can either deal with the pain
or wait to get on a plane
But in a day we'll have to say it again
