Here I am sitting on the beach again
Watching as the tide comes rolling in.
I miss the times when I looked into your eyes
A sacrifice I made for paradise.

The objects in your mirror
are closer than they actually appear.

    General Commentummm...yeah...punk e...learn english, or some language other than the one you're trying to use. you may come off as intelligent if you do. and also, don't tell someone they're wrong. let people have their own opinions and meanings of songs.

    and i agree with locust.

    General CommentI think he just gave up something that he loved. He gave up staring into her eyes for something better maybe.

    General CommentI feel he means, for whatever reason, he cannot be with his object of affection...he sacrificed something important in his life to be with her, and now shes just a memory :( sad
