I'm going over the bridge it's the long way home
But the drive isn't half what it seems
And the red brake lights look like rivers of electric blood flows in parallel streams

But love gets you only so far
Regret gets you only so far

I'm going over the bridge and the water is rough
And the spray bursts up on the windshield
And glancing across, the lea side rests, the quietness there is concealed

She's living miles and miles and more from me now
And she'll only move further away.
It gets so hard to explain when you're living alone and it was always already that way.

I'm going over the bridge and I'm thinking of you
And how strange everything seems to be
I could go over the edge, I could dive right in, and the water I'd join easily.

But love gets you only so far
Regret gets you only so far


from the lossless e​.​p., released November 26, 2013
