Time passes by like towns on a highway,
And I can't deny everything I feel inside.
You took my heart, dangled it on a pretty strand,
Left me thread-by-thread, falling apart.

Everyone promised me, "Time, it heals everything."
But, I'm still waiting,
In the wake of nothing.

(Chorus)
I'd give anything to,
Go back to this old town where,
We ran circles around our fears,
And dove right in - to love.

I was just a girl, figuring out this crazy world,
Better off alone, protecting my fragile heart.
You came a long, broke down all my guarded walls,
Showed me something real, gave me back my shine.

Everyone warned me, "Love, it ends too quickly."
But, I stayed close by,
Lost, deep in those eyes.

(chorus)
I'd give anything to go back to this old town where,
We ran circles around our fears,
And dove right in - to love.

Favorite Quote:
"As I hide behind these books I read, while scribbling my poetry,
like art could save a wretch like me, with some ideal ideology that no one can hope to achieve.
And I am never real; it is just a sketch of me.
And everything I made is trite and cheap and a waste of paint, of tape, of time." - Bright Eyes
