when we were kids we tried to climb all the tallest trees
chased the things that we wanted but could never be
and wandered into moments where i swear it should have buried me
spent some time all alone in the cold
carried on with the friends who never call anymore
this is how it goes
this is where we let go


i thought i knew
where i needed to go
and i thought i knew
all i needed to know

and heaven's always gonna be just inches away
dreams are even closer when you sleep okay
but i swear i'll never notice any difference anyway
so i grab all my things and i count all my change
nothings gonna stop me but i pray everyday
and the worst has yet to come
but the best is on it's way

but i wanna know
where i needed to go
and i wanna know
all i needed to know

so i pour another drink and i sit by the street
been thinking about these memories they're haunting my sleep
i HOPE i let go of everything that's ruining me
but i feel so much further from the horrible things
i think i'm getting closer to the people i need
i HOPE i let go of everything that's ruining me

and HEAVEN's always gonna take the people we need...
but, HEAVEN's always gonna be just inches away...
