From the back of my eye
I thought I saw you keeping track of this
maybe now those troubled thoughts will finally let me rest
they say distance makes the heart grow fonder
I'm not a liar and I can't be stronger
distance makes the heart grow fonder

It's gotten kind of late and you haven't said goodbye
I can't tell you what I'm feeling for you, and I wish you wouldn't cry
You're starting to scare me babe
I hope you heard me right
I know you'll feel all right

I can't take it much more
and I think I'll need to scream

From the back of my eye
I thought I saw you keeping track of this
maybe now those troubled thoughts will finally let me rest
they say distance makes the heart grow fonder
I'm not a liar and I can't be stronger
distance makes the heart grow fonder

Won't you say anything
Is there something I didn't catch
are you playing with my head
or are you waiting for some trap
say something baby
I need to hear your voice
I need to hear your safe and sound
I won't let you make that choice

and  I can't take it much more
and I think I'll need to scream
are you playing with me baby
or are you hoping on a dream
are you lost without a broken cause
are you found without a map
and I can't take this anymore
I hope you'll bridge the gap

It's gotten kind of late and you haven't said goodbye
I can't tell you what I'm feeling for you, and I wish you wouldn't cry
You're starting to scare me babe
I hope you heard me right
I know you'll feel all right

It's gotten kind of late and you haven't said goodbye
I can't tell you what I'm feeling for you, and I wish you wouldn't cry
You're starting to scare me babe
I hope you heard me right
I know you'll feel all right

but even when I'm out of sight
Your all thats in my thoughts
don't pull the trigger anymore
or it'll loosen all our knots

and I can't take it anymore
and I think I need to scream

It's gotten kind of late and you haven't said goodbye
I can't tell you what I'm feeling for you, and I wish you wouldn't cry
You're starting to scare me babe
I hope you heard me right
I know you'll feel all right
