With the sounds of the ocean crashing
7:30 friday evening everything comes tumbling down
I choke back each tear that bleeds
I'd rather rest forever in your arms
I'd rather stay here than go
But I know that I should leave
As I sit here helpless
Don't go you said you wouldn't
You said you couldn't
Don’t go you said you wouldn’t
You said you couldn’t
Don’t go you said you wouldn’t
You said you couldn’t
You said you wouldn’t
You said you couldn’t
I think of our time together is it fading
Or am I dreaming
Everything you said lives on
I cherish our memories
I want to kiss your tears away tonight
It's hard to give up the one you never thought you'd leave
Don't go…
Don’t go…
Your eyes see through my soul
Don't go…
Don’t go…
You say as I walk out your door.
With the sound of the ocean crashing
7:30 Friday evening everything comes tumbling down….

    General Commentthis is one of the most beautiful songs i have ever heard. it really makes you happy for everything you have and makes you want to cherish the one you love even more. juliana theory really knows how to get to people.

    General Commenti think this song hits a lot of people because of what the song is about. there are so many songs about breaking up, but very few emphasize on the necessity of it. this song portrays the love two people can share, but can't continue having together. yay i love it!!!

    General Commentthis song makes me want to cry everytime i hear it. My first love came to visit me from a differenct state and before he came on the phone he was saying that when he comes he'll never want to leave, but the last day he spent here we listened to this song (the first time i had heard it) and it was really sad from the "dont go, you said you wouldnt, you said you couldnt" part. i havnt seen him since that day :(
