Possibility Days Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
It was a cold 3am at JFK
I guess you stayed 'cause you wanted to stay
We went from zero to everything all in a day
And then Kennedy took you away
Verse 2
I thought of a short
Robe that was keeping you warm
And the moments
That make up the light till you wake up
Verse 3
We sit on a swing and talk with the girl
She tells you she wanted to kiss you
And you know that the worst part of a good day
Is hearing yourself say goodbye
One more possibility day
Goes on, and on
Verse 4
I go west but your weather has changed
You're just scared I'm mistaken for strange
When you want me to leave then
I start to believe I should stay
I've gotta get out of L.A.
Verse 5
It seems like the short days are over
'Cause you don't just don't sleep in the daylight
So I don't sit up nights
I lay on my back on top of the hill and your body
Is breaking the sky 'cause you're shaking
Verse 6
And the worst part of a good day
Is knowing it's slipping away
That's one more possibility day
That is gone
Verse 7
We were waiting for winter this year
But you came and it never appeared
Me and you we know too many reasons
For people and season that pass
Like they weren't even here
Verse 8
Now living in smiles is better you say
We carry the burdens of all of our days
Just so scared that you'll leave
You're scarred that I'll stay
It's an impossibility day
Verse 9
And we only saw half of the ballet
I said good night, good bye
Seems like a good thing
So you know it's a good lie
You can run out of choices
And still hear a voice in your head
When you're lying in bed
And it says that the best part of a bad day
Is knowing it's okay
Verse 10
The color of everything changes
The sky rearranges it's shade
And the smile doesn't fade
Into the phone call
And one bad decision we've made
Verse 11
And the worst part of a good day
Is the one thing you don't say
And you don't know how but you
Wish there was some way so
Verse 12
And you pull down the shades
And you shut out the light
Because somehow you mixed up
Good bye and good night
Verse 13
And you one thing you won't say
Is everyone knows possibility days
Are impossible
It just feels wrong, so wrong
Still you're gone, long gone
