I watched the smoke, as it grew darker and blew up through the roof
I watched them fled, saw them panic, as the fire grew
I saw virginia, get rid of langley, and it's secrets too
I held your hand, and sat there knowing, that we would make it through

I saw this man dispose of hunger and soap operas too
I saw this field, that grew perfection full of things you do
I saw this box, get rid of heartache and cure cancer too
When i awoke i sat there hoping, this is what we'll do

If we can, we will leave a letter and this song for you
And we'll write once a day and put it through the sea to you
We'll regret all those things we thought of but didn't ever do

If we can we will leave a letter and this song for you
And we'll write once a day and put it through the sea to you
We'll regret all those things we thought of but didn't ever do
When the sky seems to clear who will then be left but of you and me and you

    this is another song that is the best! i think that its about a fire that happened near langley aka CIA and people were fledding the place cause it was burning down and the band is running away from it so they're saying that they'll leave a letter and this song for someone that one band member may have loved
