lyrics

They stand by the river, watch the sun begin to set.
The evening's nearly over but they're not over just yet.
He can feel the confrontation is on it's way.

Well they feel fine and from the outside they seem strong
But you can't suppress the feeling they won't be for long
And each movement he makes, it feels too abrupt
He tries to hold her close but it's not close enough

They're falling apart and they don't know how.
Don't give up now.
Don't give up now.
And they're feeling that it's time for them to take a bow
Don't give up now.
Don't give up, don't give up
Now

It's getting colder now, he puts his head in his hood.
And there's a mark on the ground beneath where they stood.
Suddenly things are burning up.

A car pulls up beside them, it's passenger seat empty.
And the evening lacked spark but inside her there's plenty.
His face was hidden in the shadows, her expression was bleak.
He tries to tell her that he loves her but she, she can't hear him speak.

They're falling apart and they don't know how.
Don't give up now.
Don't give up now.
And they're feeling that it's time for them to take a bow
Don't give up now.
Don't give up, don't give up
Now

She starts to move away, starts to walk to the car.
and her footsteps make no mark on the hard, black tar.
He shouts for her forgiveness, doesn't know what to say.
She gets into the car, the car starts driving away.
