long distance lovin'


if I go, would you follow
would you leave all you know?
run through woods, through the forest
and the trees and the snow?
I could never reason anyway with you
each piece of every puzzle always seemed to
fall into place
exactly in the way you want it to

to tell you I'm cold wouldn't get me far
cause that's the way things usually are
this time of year
in a little while you can see me
and I'll feel better then
with my fingers crossed for a better deal
and something sure

sink or swim, for I have been
the sweet one down the line
tearing up tones
and cracking all my bones
for something that is mine alone

four times round and I carry by the pound
every word
and I sleep in the sunshine for hours and hours
can you tell me, is it true?
have you heard?

that you can get lost in a place you know
like the back of your hand while the sirens grow
in the front of your mind, do you ever unwind?
is it all for show?

sink or swim, for I have been
the sweet one down the line
holding out and half past doubt
that sometime you'll be mine alone
