Lyrics

Looking at old pictures
and letters from the past
the promise of a future
which came along too fast
And I can't help but feeling all the weight
of the dreams we had and the friends who went away

I know it's not so common
and neither civilized
you may be disappointed
or just a bit surprised
but I feel that from today I have to go
I can no longer stand to play this role

No don't come so near me
because I'll lose my nerve
I know you never meant it
It may not be what you deserve
But as you seem intent
to waste all of your life
I can't stay, please don't cry
I have to go and live out mine

And so
We're done
We locked and load'd the gun
It did not hurt as much as I would think

But I can't help and feel the pain and all the sorrow
'cause the summer should have come by us tomorrow
It's a shame that once again we'll be alone
'cause the summer of our life will soon be gone

No don't come so near me
because I'll lose my nerve
I know you never meant it
It may not be what you deserve
But as you seem intent
to waste all of your life
I can't stay, please don't cry
I have to go and live out mine
