Hey guys. A new one for you.


This summer sucks so far, you know -
I've spent most my time at home.
And I've seen some girls so far,
But they're not like you at all.
These words I can't speak,
coming out.
As always I have doubts.
I've held my tongue more than once,
And you've slipped through the cracks.
I can't say I want you back.

[Chorus...]
I need something real -
They're all so fake.
Not the ones that I'd want to date.
I need you here,
We'll get out of this town,
We'll run 'til we run out of ground.

I had my chances, I let them all go.
All your friends said that you didn't know.
I fell asleep at the wheel,
Now you're gone, life's unreal.
Before we all leave for good,
I'll tell you what I should.
I just hope you won't go,
Hope you won't tell me no.

[Chorus again please]

[After some instrumental, this a few times. Think the end of Feeling This, but not as many repetitions.]

We can run out of town,
'til we run out of ground,
'til the stars leave the sky,
'til it's just you and I.
We can run 'til the earth becomes flat,
we won't ever come back,
'til the stars leave the sky,
then it's just you and I.

Every time I try to pick it up like falling sand,
As fast as I pick it up,
it runs away through my clutching hands.
There's nothing else I can really do...

Thanks guys.

I'm C4C-ing you two right now

EDIT: How do you think adding a " - not yet." to the last line of the first verse would go? Kinda stop before heading into the chorus... maybe a pick slide or something for the transition.
