You say I’m beautiful
I say you’re strange
Feelings that we can’t deny as we build bridges ‘cross the sky

I say forever
You say one day more
We’ve already come this far, a little more shouldn't be that hard

3,000 miles away
We don't run out of things to say until

My cold hands hold
the shaking phone
I no longer know your voice as
you say i love you but

You say I'm funny
I say you’re drunk
I laugh and hope that we make it through I hear you say you hope so too

I ask can I see you
You say you're unsure
You're feeling like you're going insane, tired of plans and you're tired of planes

3,000 miles away
You said you'd never let me get away

My cold hands hold
the shaking phone
I no longer know this voice as
you say I love you but

You didn't want to stay with me
so i will i will let you be

My cold hands hold
the shaking phone
I no longer know this voice as
you say I love you...

As your leaves change mine stay the same
Waiting for color in this endless rain
Your heart moves on, my heart asks why
Our bridges fell across the sky

I say I love you
but you’re not on the line
Nothing left for me to say
but goodbye

Ari Herstand’s most recent offering, Like Home, explores the idea of what home means. And where to find it when the concept has been shattered. In a period when so many have been confined to their homes, this is an exploration that couldn’t be more worthy of the times. ... more
