lyrics

You say I need to climb the ladder,
and just look out for number one
I’m driving home back to New Hampshire
to find the place where I succumbed.

God knows why I oversold it:
the hope I wouldn't come undone
So bury me in autumn leaves,
and count the star light one by one.

And I find, whenever the days grow short,
that I feel the need to go.
But I lied, its not that you're falling short,
its just that you made me feel alone.

So you feel over exposed (falling short)
and lost the contrast in the sun
you wonder you feel outplayed (falling short)
its just the season made me run.

And I find, whenever the days grow short
that I feel the need to go
But I lied its not that you're falling short
its just that you made me feel alone.

Around the corner, down the street,
up the stairs where we always meet
Past the exit, and down the road,
is this real? I don’t even know.
Through the window, across the sea,
I only hope that you’ll wait for me
Read your letters one by one.
Come to find you when I see the sun (fall in fall out)
But I can’t stop the rain.

And I find, whenever the days grow short
that I feel the need to go (falling short)
But I lied its not that you're falling short
its just that you made me feel alone. (falling short)
