Let's start at one
And count the days
Let's hope to God that time flies like they say
Cause this instance can't distance my heart from yours tonight
But I'm lying awake now and I'm holding your picture
It's so cold here without you

And I need you now, cause it's killing me
And I wish somehow, you were here with me
When I fall asleep I feel you with me
Till I fall asleep and you are with me

Could this be more
I've been up all night riding subway lines
Now we're sleeping on your floor

Can we make this a lifetime, you're all I want right now
Life keeps telling me I need to go
But what if I wanna stay
Cause I'm lost here without you

I found a love I never have before, you changed me
And I will wait however long it takes, you changed me
You say the words that I've been thinking
I'll never let you go

(Next stop is Davisville, Davisville station)

    Pretty sure it's a song he wrote for Lights and she has one for him Like for when they're away from each other and stuff, The video shows him, waiting 40 days to see her again and after the days have come, at the end of the video he goes to her and they embrace.

    This song is about a man who is willing to wait however long it takes to be with his love and how much she means to him. And the 40 days are the days that they are away from eachother even when they are not together they know that their love is real! Best song ever!

    This song is from the lead singer to his wife after being married for 40 days. She's also in a band and they sing "... And counting"
    Get it? They've been together 40 days and counting.

    Firstly, lights is one person, not a band. And when your comment was posted, lights and beau has only been married for 3 days. The meaning of 40 days... & and counting is that when lights and beau were both touring they were separated for a long time that always was around the span of 40 days.
