Such Great Heights

  • I am thinking it's a sign
    That the freckles in our eyes
    Are mirror images
    And when we kiss they're perfectly aligned

    And I have to speculate
    That God Himself did make
    Us into corresponding shapes
    Like puzzle pieces from the clay

    And true it may seem like a stretch
    But it's thoughts like this that catch
    My troubled head when you're away
    And when I am missing you to death

    And when you are out there on the road
    For several weeks of shows
    And when you scan the radio
    I hope this song will guide you home

    They will see us waving from such great heights
    Come down now, they'll say
    But everything looks perfect from far away
    Come down now but we'll stay

    I tried my best to leave
    This all on your machine
    But the persistent beat
    It sounded thin upon the sending

    And that frankly will not fly
    You'll hear the shrillest highs
    And lowest lows with the windows down
    And this is guiding you home

    They will see us waving from such great heights
    Come down now they'll say
    But everything looks perfect from far away
    Come down now but we'll stay

    They will see us waving from such great heights
    Come down now they'll say
    But everything looks perfect from far away
    Come down now but we'll stay

    (They will see us waving from such great heights)
    (Come down now)
    They will see us waving from such great heights
    (Come down now) Writer/s: Ben Gibbard, Jimmy Tamborello
