Tonight I looked at you and you smiled.
Will this feeling last forever?
Will it die and fade away?
Is this all that we’ll share?
I’ll pour my heart out if you’ll stay
And there’s a chance that you might say
“this could be never-ending.”

Through all these years
The sweat and tears,
And now it comes to this.
I can’t see that
The rituals of my life define me.
No words can express
How you’re loosing faith in me,
And I’m loosing strength from you.


I tried, you cried,
we said we’d try so hard.
It only goes so far,
Will we make a dent
Or will we only leave a scar?

I can’t believe that you turn your back
On everything you promised me.
I can’t believe that I turned my back
And now you’ve erased me.
I can’t believe that I turned my back.
I always knew that you’d turn your back.
And so it goes, well I suppose,
Its time, its time to move along now.
Times have changed and
Faces rearranged
Now you sing another song.

I tried, you cried,
we said we’d try so hard.
It only goes so far,
Will we make a dent
Or will we only leave a scar?

That night I looked at you and you smiled.
The feeling’s gone forever,
It’s been replaced with something new.
There’s nothing more for us to do.
I gave you everything that I had
And after all that we’ve been through,
This could be never-ending.

I tried, you cried,
we said we’d try so hard.
It only goes so far,
Will we make a dent
Or will we only leave a scar?

    General CommentSeems like it is about a relationship that seemed like it'd last forever, and then didn't.

    General Commentlol firedrillsguitar he probably told you that because you're fucking stupid. It's obviously about a relationship where they feel like they "try so hard" but it only goes so far. You can only do so much to keep a relationship together, sometimes what seems like it will last forever, never does. Feelings change over time and you promise eachother that you will be together forever, but you don't, it just feels that way at one point. He's saying basically the feelings gone, it's not like it used to be, time to move on. I don't see how it is about fans..lol.

    General CommentI think this song is about how they connect to the fans each show, and that they hope that even after the show ends the fans will remember it forever. After they pour their hearts out song after song the show finally has to end and then they move on to do another one the next day with all different people and faces.
