lyrics

On a cold beach
The clouds drown the sunlight
We share a final meal on paper plates
No one around
No lifeguard to save us
We rose up with the tide
But fall awaits

Lamenting past days
On the last day of summer
Cementing pathways
On the last day of summer
There we go
Singing anthems of sunny days
Keeping memories alive
Breathing in waves
The winds picked up and blew
All our hopes and dreams
Our dreams and hopes
Our hopes and dreams
Away it seems

So many miles
We ran in the darkness
The effort on your face concealed from me
Stepping in time
As heartbeat by heartbeat
The blood that lines our veins
Returns to the sea

Lamenting past days
On the last day of summer
Cementing pathways
On the last day of summer
Now we know
Singing anthems of sunny days
Keeping memories alive
Though the sand still lingers between our toes
The hourglass empties
And the moment dies

Refer to me in present tense
If we must die tonight
Don’t keep me in suspense
Line the future with electric fence
Confess by neon light
Half-hearted penitence
Hollow pretense

Lamenting past days
On the last day of summer
Cementing pathways
On the last day of summer
Time to go
Singing anthems of sunny days
Keeping memories alive
Though the sand still lingers between our toes
The hourglass empties
And the moment dies
