lyrics

it's been a long and wasted summer,
I left you around mid July.
I never thought I'd be looking back so soon,
But we never really got to say goodbye.

And I rushed it I know I did,
Why did I run?

The day that I left I should have turned myself right back,
I have some unfinished business to attend to with you.
It's too damn cold out here and my heart craves for your desert air.
I didn't breathe in enough of you when I had my chance to.
I'm sorry that I left so soon.
Please forgive me.

Nothing had ever been so beautiful,
Nothing before was so brand new.
i tried, despite the walls that I built around,
To keep you, but I let go.

And I look back 1000 miles and I wish I'd stopped where I was.
Why did I run?

The day that I left I should have turned myself right back,
I have some unfinished business to attend to with you.
It's too damn cold out here and my heart craves for your desert air.
I didn't breathe in enough of you when I had my chance to.
I'm sorry that I left so soon.
Please forgive me.

And now the sun sets its golden rays,
All my anticipated brighter days,
Fall away from me,
As I lie awake alone and realize they're not ahead of me.
They're not ahead of me.

The day that I left I should have turned back.
