lyrics

Walking back through bitter winter
No cars on this quiet road
No letters yet I keep checking
for a piece of you to come by post

I ring you up across the country
Don’t know the time change, I think it’s 4
My heart skips right on beat
As I hear you say hello

I can hardly hear you
But darlin don't hang up the phone
You know all I want is to be near you
Just don't give up don't give hope

We try to figure out the distance
Two lives barely tethered now
Different lives different directions
And neither wants to turn around

Avoiding ending conversation
These sad goodbyes, you hang up first
separate lives until I ring you
All the distance is the worst

I can hardly hear you
But darlin don't hang up the phone
I’ll do what it takes to see you
Just don't give up don't give hope

You took a flight to my apartment
We made an omelette when you arrived
Fighting forward without fighting
Trying to see through the others eyes

Darlin while you’re here I hear you
And I wish you didn’t have to go
You know all I want is to be near you
Just don't give up don't give hope
