i waited too long

let you slip away time and time again

sabotaged all the good we had going for you and me, for us

i hurt you as a result of trying to avoid letting myself get hurt

and then one day..youre gone

and now somehow, youre back

somehow i got another chance at what i thought i’d never have

but now instead of our stubborn tendencies,

that growing tension,

those painful silences..

that in the past kept us so far apart,

the atlantic ocean separates us.

i cant deny, it breaks my heart;

as i lay here in your arms, laughing at your stupid jokes,

the warmth of your breath on my neck;

a tear rolls down my cheek

i turn away and pretend nothing is wrong, hoping that you dont see

knowing that by the end of the week you’ll be taken away from me

i finally got you and you got me

so ill just have to wait

like you had to wait for me

13 months is a damn long time,

but good things come to those who wait

and deep inside i know

we’ll get it right this time
