The Airborne Toxic Event A Letter To Georgia Lyrics

How can I explain to you

The picture of this avenue

The rain falls on the street outside

And I wonder why on this Tuesday afternoon

I sit alone inside

Same four walls I lived inside

So many lives I lived and died

None so much as I lived with you

I see you on the highway

A thousand miles away

Rain falls through your hair and cheeks

Your tears and mascara streaks

Your face reflected in the glass

Lines in the pavement go past

Just like the lines around your eyes

That held the weight of endless sad goodbyes

Everybody that I know

Thinks that I should just let you go

You run from everything you see

You hurt the ones you love like me

But here I sit and picture you

Your fingers worn and your shirt torn too

Your heart so big and broke in two

Your mind drifting through all you knew

Afraid to love

Afraid to lose

Afraid to start

Afraid to choose

Afraid to live

Afraid to die

Afraid to let the days slip by

Afraid you’ll change or stay the same

Afraid you’ll lose yourself again

Afraid of the truth that love

Can cause you so much pain

I know

I felt it too

I know, I know

Darling I wish it wasn’t true
