Breathe deep this time, it's not the last time but savour it
Because you don't know when your sweet lips will ever meet
The cold winter air quite like tonight, the mist swept in from the Atlantic
The stage is set for something more than you can take

This is never how it was supposed to be
But words don't come easily now

You fall short of every wish, for everything to come to this
It gets so hard for you to take another fall

The skyline unfolds, the clouds begin to break
But it can't save you, this time it's all on you

But home is further than you think
And everything is ruined; come undone
The pain still tears at you

It never ends.

    General CommentThis song is incredible. It seems to me that it might be about someone's love going away, and they don't know when they'll see eachother again. And maybe they hadn't planned for whatever it was to happen, but sometimes things happen that you just can't help...
