if i thought it would help i would drive this car into the sea. if the fire and the smoke and explosions could speak for me. if the words that i used to try to explain how something inside of me started to break. ah, but one by one my words just got in the way.

and how many nights did i crash against the waves with my head going under? how many days did i spend trying to see it your way? if you try you remember. i changed a change and kept on saying, “one of these days something inside’s gonna break.” and we won’t get it back now, baby. (something’s gonna break.)

if i thought it would help i would carve your name into my heart. and if i thought it would help i would carve your name into my heart. all of the things that i tried to explain, how something inside of me started to break. we were living proof. one by one we drifted away.

and time after time there were things that would scare me to tears. while you called me haunted. i paced around the bed where you laid. one of these days baby, something... (something’s gonna break.)

drifted away... one by one and day by day. i became the dark in the places where you live.

If I thought it would help, I would drive this car into the sea
If the fire and smoke and explosions could speak for me
If the words that I used to try to explain how something inside of me started to break
I would - one by one, my words just got in the way

How many nights did I crash against the waves with my head going under?
How many days did I spend trying to see it your way - if you try, you'd remember
I changed and changed and kept on saying
"One of these days, something inside's gonna break and we won't get it back now, baby" (something's gonna break)

And if I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart
And if I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart  
And all of the things that I tried to explain, how something inside of me started to break
We were living proof - one by one, we drifted away

One by one, we drifted away

And time after time there were things that would scare me to tears, while you called me haunted
I paced around the bed where you laid
One of these days, baby, something - something's gonna break

And if I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart
And if I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart  
And all of the things that I tried to explain, how something inside of me started to break
We were living proof - one by one, we drifted away  

Away, hey, yeah
Drifted away, hey, yeah

One by one and day by day, I became the dark in the places where we lived

And if I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart
And if I thought it would help, I would carve your name into my heart  
And all of the things that I tried to explain, how something inside of me started to break
We were living proof - one by one, we drifted away

One by one, we drifted away

We were living proof - one by one, we drifted away

"Come July we'll ride the Ferris Wheel go round and round and round, If you never let me go, then I will never let you down."

"And all of the things that I tried to explain, how something inside of me started to break
We were living proof - one by one, we drifted away"

Musically this song is very similar to Backseats (both soaring anthems to close the album) but the difference between those lyrics is tragically beautiful.

I personally miss the romantic hope of T59S, but I mean that is not where Brian's life is right now and gotta applaud Brian for staying honest with where he is.

Really falling in love with this song. Some of Brian's best writing, IMO.

Also basically the same tempo and the same chords in a couple parts. It definitely sounds like they're trying to recapture the magic of The Backseat but to me at least they miss the mark. I know I'm one of the few who thinks that but yeah.
