love that's tucked away
will never find its destination
stuffed into an envelope
never signed stamped or sealed
mine sat on a shelf collecting dust
i never had the strength to
mail it away
i just watched it dry and yellow
'til i gathered up the courage
to let those words seem real

growing up ten blocks away
sure lends itself to comfort
every passing street
evokes a distant memory
fear of the unknown
may be a common institution
and every chance it gets
it takes its toll on you and me

every summer day
still makes me sad that it's not snowing
it takes significant determination
just to leave the house
and i may be scared of dogs
but not half as much as making plans
to be with you forever
just to watch you walk away
don't walk away

when we go
just be patient with me please
when we go
it's not as easy for me
when we go
i'll need you there with me
when we go

every day i tie my hands
with higher expectations
remnants of a competition
i'd rather forget
goals and aspirations
have been easier to swallow
after making the decision
to live to be
who i wanna be
without accumulating anymore regret
