red line

because i miss you
i have to make something new every day
it keeps the blues away

because i love you
i have to love someone new every day
it makes you less far away

i crossed a red line to reach you
and i’d never felt so consumed
each other thing burned away
and left the plain and simple truth
so now paint your house
the red is all we got and i am proud
it just sounds so pretty when you say it out loud

because i found you
i have to draw a map of the 50 states
it keeps the blues away

because i could lose you
i have to carve out an empty space
it makes you less far away

i crossed a red line to reach you
and i’d never felt so consumed
each other thing burned away
and left the plain and simple truth
so now paint your self
the red is all we got and i am proud
it just sounds so pretty when you say it out loud
