there was just something in the air...
it tasted like the ocean breeze when i was young,
turbulent and elusive as it spilled across my lips
and now i'm standing on our shore.

seconds away, only seconds
till it rips through my throat.
seconds away, only seconds
till it happens again.

there was just something in the the air,
it smelled like autumn's star speckled hair
and i held that breath long in my lungs,
like first kisses when we were young...
and now seconds away till this song is sung.
seconds away, only seconds
till this one breath finds it's mark,
till green fields fade and bedrooms go dark...
and for a moment a smile flashes across my face
in the backseat we were dreaming of a better place.
for a moment i believe it will be okay,
and this one breath will bring back that day.

So now i'm standing on our shore
i can hear the songs that i adored
with this breath held tight beneath my chin
my eyes flutter closed upon the wind...

and then the breath is gone...
these are the words of my love song.
my parting words to the truest of friends,
the wish in my heart to make amends...
but was there anything i could have said
to cut the rope you tied around your head?
was there anything we could do?
a sunny afternoon to see us through?

Then the bullet rips through my face
searching to find our better place,
but as skull snowflakes descent the skies,
i saw only what was left in your eyes.

"distance will always be distance" are the words of the sea as it waved
to the sky.
