That was a close call

We see the same stars every night
A thousand miles apart
And they're just as bright

Is it so hard to believe
Can you find some kind of relief
Thinking it's just circumstances
Oh yeah

That was a close call

The way the wind blows through your hair
You drive so fast
But you're not going anywhere

Can you give me what I need
Keep the promise we agreed
Was made on circumstances
Oh yeah

Close call - circumstances

I said will you - you said "I do"
Well I want more than my name
On your tattoo

Will you run from me again
Hide your heart away and when
You know it's circumstances
Is it so hard to believe
Can you find some kind of relief
Knowing it's just circumstances

Close call
That was a close call
