1997 – The Roads You Can Take lyrics

We drove through the rain,
Past the evergreen trees.
And we rolled just like the water
Along the veins of its leaves.
And we traced our memories
Into the shape of a map.
Inside the palm of our hands,
Bearing the secrets unkept.

And I don't think I could ever feel this way again.
You should be an actress, because you're so good at lying.
You bring my to my feet, and then you leave me here crying.
If the feelings are gone, then what am I left with?
Then what am I left with?
Then what am I left with?

It's true that we're young,
But love is said to be ageless.
The same is said of pain and desire and depression.
Would it make it easier if I made you hate me?
I only wanna see you happy,
Only wanna see you smile.

I'll take these pills and shove 'em
Down my throat to keep the words
"I love you" from escaping my lips,
To keep me sleeping and keep me quiet.
Still, I love you,
And that's the only thing I know for sure.

If you only need time to forget about me,
(If it's time you need, my love...)
If you only need time to forget about me,
(If it's time you need, my love...)
If you only need time to forget about me,
(If it's time you need, my love...)
Then I can forget about you.
(If it's time you need, my love, I'd give it to you.)

I'll give you my love if you say that it's time.
I'll tear down the walls you've built up in our lives.
As the barrier breaks between your heart and mine,
You would die to forget; I will live to remind you.

Tear down the walls!
(I will live to remind you.)
Tear down the walls!
(I will live to remind you.)
Tear down the walls!
(I will live to remind you.)
Tear down the walls!
(I will live...)
