Possibility Days - Counting Crows

It was a cold 3am at JFK
Guess you stayed cause you wanted to stay
We went from zero to everything all in a day
And then Kennedy took you away

I thought of a short
Road that was keeping you warm
And the moments
That make up the light till you wake up

We sit on a swing and talk with the girl
She tells you she wanted to kiss you
You know that the worst part of a good day
Is knowing its slipping away
Its just one more possibility day
That is gone

I go west but your weather has changed
Your just scared I'm mistaken for strange
When you want me to leave then
I start to believe I should stay
I've got to get out of la

Guess that 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 your shaking

And the worst part of a good day
Is knowing yourself to say good bye
To one more possibility day
It goes on? and on.

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

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 ill stay
Its an impossibility day

And we only saw half of the ballet
Well I said good night, good bye
Seems like a good thing
So you know its 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 its ok

The color of everything changes
The sky rearranges its shade
And the smile doesn't fade
Into the phone call
And one bad decision we've made

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

And you pull down the shades
And you shut out the light
Because somehow you mixed up
Good bye and good night

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
