The first song we recorded for the album on the first day.


The kidnappers said
Within a couple hours I'm dead
If nobody pays the ransom.
So of course I called you.
There's no one else I know who
would dare to slip in through the transom.

You say you love when your heart is missed
Melodramatically like this.
And the situation worsens,
But if you came here in person,
They say they'll let me go.

I lied.
It was worth a try.
Oh, I just called to feel your heart, that's all.
'Cause I miss you.
I always do.
Nearly to death, like a lung misses a breath.

My doctor said
I shouldn't even try to leave my bed.
I'm as grave as a cemetery.
He says my only hope
is for you to come home tonight;
He says I might

Stay alive,
Not be so sick of watching watches tick.
'Cause I miss you.
I always do.
Nearly to death, like a lung misses a breath.
I miss you to death.
Like a lung misses a breath.
