It was the first day in a long time
That we didn't speak a word
I saw it coming
That all our loving
Would surely stop and crash and burn
What about those good days?
We'd be in bed all day
Laughing and joking around
Not like those long days
Oh God those long days
The silence hurt me in so many ways

Pick up the phone
Im all alone
I need you here by my side
Cause all my bones
They're sounding tones
Full of angst, love and worry
The times we spent together overweigh all the fights
The arguments don't matter when we think about the good nights
Come home darling, my arms are spread
You're always in my head so lets crawl back into bed

Lets go to cruise control baby
You know i worry about us now and then
We've been a little shaky lately
And i don't ever wanna stumble again
Lets go to cruise control baby
Its smooth sailing from here on out
We've been a little shaky lately
We're gonna fix this there's no doubt
Come on girl
Lets work things out

Its in the evening
I get the feeling
Of regret, loneliness and woe
Its in the morning
I wake up cold
And think of what you might be doing without me
I like to think you're the same but you're not
Boredom can change things a lot
I take all the blame but we can still feel the same
As we did last Summer
Just listen to me singing your name

(Chorus 2x)
