In my rear view
I watch you watching the twilight
Behind the telephone lines
With nothing to prove,
Or to assume
Just thinking that your thoughts
Are different than mine

In my rear view
I watch you
And I gave you your life
But you give me mine
I see you slowly swim away
As the light is leaving town
To a place that I can't be
But there's no apologies

Just go on
Just go on
There're still so many things
I want to say to you
But go on
Just go on
We're bound by blood that's moving
From the moment that we start
From the moment that we start

I see you perfect little eyes
Watch the shadows of the clouds
On the surface of the ocean
Out the window of a plane
I get nervous when I fly
I'm used to walking with my feet
Turbulence is like a sigh
That I can't help but over think

What is the purpose of my life
If it doesn't have to do
With learning to let it go
Live vicariously through you
You could do the same
It's the least you can
Because it's a lonely little chain
If you don't add to it

So go on
Just go on
There's still so many things
I want to say to you
But go on
Just go on
We're bound by blood and love
From the moment that we start

Just go on
Just go on
There're still so many things
I want to say to you
Just go on
Just go on
We're bound by blood that's moving
From the moment that we start
From the moment that we start

    At some point, we always have to part ways. The song speaks about what one would want to do if only they were still together, if they still have each other. So the song, for me, is trying to tell us to make the most of our time to let everyone important to us know and realize how much they mean to us, cause time will come that we'll all say goodbye; and it's only the love that we've shared that we can keep and share, that'll stay and we can keep far longer than forever.

    Life's like that. We live, we love, but at some point we have to let go of each other. As some point in our lives we are bound to let go and at when that point comes we would wish we had more time cause it's on that day that we'll only realize we have a lot to say about the other, about life and thank-yous. Always too late. The message now is for us to make the most that we still have each other, to talk and to hold. *Nice song; very refreshing*.
