lyrics

When we met last year in May
My head was going crazy
I didn't know up from down or left from right
So you brought me back to earth
Calmed my mind and made me laugh
'Til three months in, when I found it was our last night

You said I'm leaving in the morning, I'll be gone by midday
I've a one way ticket booked and a backpack
But I won't ask for anyone to wait for me
So I'll hope that you're still here when I come back

Now it's my turn to give the news
'Cause It's my turn to leave
I'm going away for two years in the cold
It's gonna be hard for us to cope
But I'll try my best because I know
The times that we have shared are worth keeping

I'll say I'm leaving in the morning, I'll be gone by midday
I've a one way ticket booked and a backpack
But no I won't ask for anyone to wait for me
So I'll hope that you're still here when I come back

We've gone our separate ways
But when we talk we talk for days
We still stay up way too late in the evening
I'm not saying it's much fun
So let's not walk, let's run
'Cause what's the point in trying without believing
After all that we've been through

So I'm still leaving in the morning, I'll be gone by midday
I've a one way ticket booked and a backpack
But no I won't ask for anyone to wait for me
So I'll hope that you're still here when I come back
