lyrics

If absence makes the heart grow fonder, dear
The presence of my fond hear makes me veer
To the tragic side
Where high school poet still resides
With love that’s
With love that’s
With love that’s unrequited

My wishful thinking will not bring you here
I’ll morse code dash and dot the hemisphere
So you feel the shake
And the steady rhythm I will make
To reach you
To reach you
To reach you oh my darling

Am I really the man who is writing to you?
Or am I acting the part?
Hoping I’ll start to be
The impression you got of me
How can one day be enough
My heart’s not that tough
It rips and it tears
On foreign affairs

My allied forces have been breaking ranks
To fill our future in like crossword blanks
And I know you’re more
Than the story that I need you for
I want you
I want you
I want you now completely

(Chorus)

I hold too tightly on to fleeting things
I snap propellers off and shatter biplane wings

So all of what I have is just what if
And dwelling on that fact just scares me stiff
And I want to scream
Something crazy like “God save the Queen!”
And I will
And I will
And I will gladly rip and tear
And rip
And tear

Am I really the man who is writing to you?
Am I really the man who is writing to you?
Am I really the man who is writing to you?
