Dashboard Confessional – So Long lyrics

Hand out the window
Floatin' on air
Just a flip of the wrist
I'd be wavin' you goodbye

Drive past the lifeguard stand
Where I'd sit around waiting for you to remember

As I drive

How the girls could turn to ghosts before your eyes
And the very dreams that led to them are keeping them from dying
And how the grace with which she walked into your life
And stayed with you in your steps , pace with you a while
For so long, so long
So long so long

The speaker in this door is blown
So nothing sounds quite right
Takin' my time, takin' this drive
Away from this town, goodbye
And I drive this ocean road
And I remember
The small of your back
And the nape of your neck
I remember everything, as I drive
Wavin' this town, goodbye

How the girls can turn to ghosts before your eyes
And the very dreams that led to them are keeping them from dying
And how the grace with which she walked into your life
Will stay with you in your steps, and pace with you a while
So long, so long, so long, so long sl sl sl sl sl sl sl sl sl sl sl

Takin' my time, takin' this drive
Wavin' this town so long, so long

(Interlude of da da dums)

And I will leave under the cover
Summer's kiss upon the sky
Like the stone face of your lover
Just before she says goodbye
I was certain that the season could be held between my arms
But just as summer's hold is fleeting
I was here but now I'm gone
I'm gone

(interlude of da da dums)
