Airborne Toxic Event, The - A Letter To Georgia Lyrics




How can I explain to you
The picture of this avenue
The rain falls on the street outside
And I wonder why on this Tuesday afternoon
I sit alone inside
Same four walls I lived inside
So many lives I lived and died
None so much as I lived with you
I see you on the highway
A thousand miles away
Rain falls through your hair and cheeks
Your tears and mascara streaks
Your face reflected in the glass
Lines in the pavement go past
Just like the lines around your eyes
That held the weight of endless sad goodbyes

Everybody that I know
Thinks that I should just let you go
You run from everything you see
You hurt the ones you love like me
But here I sit and picture you
Your fingers worn and your shirt torn too
Your heart so big and broke in two
Your mind drifting through all you knew
Afraid to love
Afraid to lose
Afraid to start
Afraid to choose
Afraid to live
Afraid to die
Afraid to let the days slip by
Afraid you'll change or stay the same
Afraid you'll lose yourself again
Afraid of the truth that love
Can cause you so much pain
I know
I felt it too
I know, I know
Darling I wish it wasn't true

    How can I explain to you
    The picture of this avenue
    The rain falls on the street outside
    And the window on this Tuesday afternoon
    I sit alone inside
    Same four walls I lived inside
    So many lives I lived and died
    But none so much as the one I lived with you
    I see you on the highway
    A thousand miles away
    Rain falls through your hair and cheeks
    Your tears and mascara streaks
    Your face reflected in the glass
    Lines in the pavement go past
    Just like the lines around your eyes
    They held the weight of all these sad goodbyes

    Everybody that I know
    Tells me just to let it go
    You run from everything they say
    You hurt the ones you love like me
    But here I sit and picture you
    Your fingers worn
    Your shirt torn through
    Your heart so big and broke in two
    Your mind drifting through all you knew
    Afraid to love
    Afraid to lose
    Afraid to start
    Afraid to choose
    Afraid to live
    Afraid to die
    Afraid you’ll let your days slip by
    Afraid you'll change or stay the same
    Afraid you'll lose yourself again
    Afraid of the truth that love
    Can cause you so much pain
    I felt it too
    I know, I know
    Darling, I wish it wasn't true

    The best 152 seconds on the internet.

  7. hockeyyismylife

  8. jackkurzon

    They have so many great songs, but this is my personal favorite. The last line, so simple, yet never have I heard it so eloquent.

  9. jackkurzon

    He couldn't have said that better.

  10. Nanchanok R.

  11. Justin Green

    Why won't my tv play any of thier videos from walt disney concert? Computer finds them on youtube just fine, but the search on youtube on my wireless tv won't bring up any videos from this concert...makes me so mad..I have a beast surround sound and this video deserves the very best sound equipment.

  12. CHRISTINE KERO

  18. Alvaro Mendoza

    They are extremely talented.

  19. James Otto

    I wouldn't consider myself an incredibly emotional guy, but damn, this song gives me shivers. In a good way.

  20. James Dicus

    I walk around my campus, with my hood pulled up, in the rain, listening to this song and remember the girl who broke my heart.

  21. Simon .Pakala

    These guys are a fun band to see live.

  22. Cornelis Kats

    Zag ze dit vrijdag ook spelen in de Melkweg in Amsterdam.
    Een van de vele hoogptepunten van de avond.
    Aardige bandleden ook die na het concert nog tijd nemen voor de fans.

  23. elvisdt63

    can wait till tomorrows show at the gibson.

  24. Neil Watson

    Hope they play it live at Glasgow in a few weeks time. REALLY looking forward to seeing them live again.

  25. Wade Shipman

    Well I met a British girl named Georgia, the moment I saw her I fell in love and it has been a month since i saw her and I will probably never see her again because I live 7,000 miles away, but when I listened to this song it reminded me of her.

  26. MoonFIame

    I saw them in concert and it was the best day of my life. I held back tears when they played this song, and tried to stop my self from screaming like a madman after Does this mean you're moving on. Two of my favorite songs. They are truly amazing.

  27. lycanwolf26

    i need to make a fake id to go see them

  28. vance nation

    Saw them perform this live at the El Ray in Los Angeles. was very moved by this song glad to find they share it with everyone on youtube. One of the greatest bands i've ever discovered.

  29. vance nation

    @reh1959 because maybe he has never experienced such tender emotions at a young age. Time will change his mind

  30. Neil Watson

    Good God!! This is what happens when you take a genius lyricist, five talented musicians at the top of their profession and add a brilliant classical quartet. Pure raw emotion. It's like a Perfect Storm of talent!!

  31. Kara MacWilliams

    this is amazing. and sad. but mostly amazing.

  32. lajmjs

    @reh1959 Just tell him the girls really like it. :-)

  33. Richard Holmes

    Why can I not get my 21 year old son to agree with me - THIS IS A TRULY GREAT BAND.

  34. Neil Watson

    Going to see them next Wednesday (6th April) in Glasgow. If they are half as good as I think they will be, i'm in for a treat!!

  35. namelessfire

    Mikel doesn't write lyrics. He writes poetry that flows so beautifully that it has no other choice but to be sung with a perfect melody.

  36. Daniel Gold

    amazing stuff. what a great idea for a DVD

  37. Felipe Carvalho

    simple as that.. there are no words for how great they are...

  38. Jean fro

    This Band Is Great!
    Fuckin' Great!
    This Band makes me cry!

  39. Ismael
