Dark streets, carry me home now and I've stayed too long. We're brave men to sip the stars dry and leave sleep alone. I've built this house out of a fate-driven dream, and these walls aren't what they seemed. Light breaks against, and I can't follow you down. Hurt stays when the work is over, and we've stayed too long. I'll save what memory lends me, when these days are gone.

    General Commentthis song just seems to be about leaving things behind in your life and moving forward from your youth. all the lines about staying too long and sipping the stars dry reinforce that interpretation. once the moments are past, all that's left are dark streets, hurt and memories.

    i just threw that out there because this song needed to be commented on. seriously, it's been up for over six years, guys.
