The way you kissed me this morning
It told me that you would soon be going
You didn't even look in my eye
When you said goodbye

And last night in your sleep you broke all the promises
That I knew you would not keep
Now I'm reading the letter that you placed on the dresser
And you're five hundred miles down the road

Escape is so simple
In a world where sunsets can be erased
But distance only loses the knife
The pattern of its scars
Can always be traced

Yeah, I remember when we said forever
Was the craziest word that we knew
But I think that I like it much better than I do goodbye

And I could sit here all evening and think of the reasons
Why you're not by my side
Instead I'll go to the kitchen, find a strong chair to sit in
And drink myself far far away

Escape is so simple
In a world where sunsets can be erased
But distance only loses the knife
The pattern of its scars can always be traced
