My Favorite Accident

Album: I Am the Movie (2003)
  • I got the message long before you said you knew
    There was no chance of us at all
    With no velocity and empty headed hard and far too long
    I spent two years alone with you

    Just when I thought I had forgotten
    You came back soft without a sound

    You said we were an accident
    With accidents you never know what could have been
    So we were an accident
    You'll always be my favorite one

    You hit the road and left me an ocean
    I can't swim in the silence of your skin skin Please let me in-
    Side the times we never had right
    Inside two years alone with you

    You said we were an accident
    With accidents you never know what could have been
    So we were an accident
    You'll always be my favorite one

    We could have been
    We could have been
    Instead of accidental running always running
    Why can't you believe

    Long winded promises of future company
    Up close the sound remains the same
    Without the reign of terror over every momentary change
    We are exactly as before

    You hit the road and left me an ocean
    I can't swim in the silence of your skin skin Please let me in-
    Side the time I had to forget you
    Inside no chance of us at all Writer/s: JESSE MACK JOHNSON, JOSHUA ALLEN CAIN, JUSTIN COURTNEY PIERRE, MATTHEW SCOTT TAYLOR, TONY RICHARD THAXTON
