I canít take all the credit for this tab cause I got a couple of the chords from the tab posted at www.dashtabs.com (sorry, I donít know the name of the tabber).  I think my tab is closer to how Chris really plays the song though.  Awesome song.  Awesome band.

Lyrics:

Verse 1

Iím always assuming the worst
but youíre going on none the less
and thereís nothing to cushion your heart led fall.
Letters from further away
Keep pulling me closer to home.
And thereís something to cushion my callous sighs.
And I know that you hope for
longer good-byes
embracing for forever
and falling in your eyes.

Chorus

Pouring over photographs
Iím living in your letters.
Breathe deeply from this
envelope it smells like you and
I canít be without that scent.
Itís filling me with
all you mean to me.

Verse 2

Continually failing these trials
but you stand by me nonetheless
and you wonít let me sink though Iím begging you.
Phone calls from further away
and messages on my machine
but I donít ever tell you this distance seems terrible.
There is no need to test my heart
with useless space.
These roads go on forever thereíll always be a place
for you
in my heart.

Outro

So Iíll hit the pavement itís gotta be better then waiting
and pushing you far away cause Iím scared.
So Iíll take my chances and head on my way up there.
Cause turning to you is like falling in love when youíre ten.
