The Airborne Toxic Event Lyrics: A Letter to Georgia

The Airborne Toxic Event, All I Ever WantedFrom The Album All I Ever Wanted (2010)
Lyrics by Mikel Jollett

A Letter to Georgia

How can I explain to you the picture of this avenue? The rain falls on the street outside my window on this Tuesday afternoon. I sit alone inside, the same four walls I’ve lived inside, so many lives I’ve lived and died, but none so much as the one I lived with you. I see you on the highway a thousand miles away, rain falls through your hair and cheeks, your tears and mascara streaks. Your face reflected in the glass, the lines on the pavement go past, just like the lines around your eyes they held the weight of all these sad goodbyes.

Everybody that I know tells me just to let it go. You run from everything you see, hurt the ones you love, like me. But here I sit and picture you, your fingers warm, your shirt torn through, your heart so big and broken too, mind drifting through all you knew. Afraid to love, afraid to lose, afraid to start, afraid to choose, afraid to live, afraid to die, afraid to let the days slip by. Afraid you’ll change or stay the same. Afraid you’ll lose yourself again. Afraid of the truth that love can cause you so much pain. I know, I felt it too, I know, I know. Darling I wish it wasn’t true.
