"Coasting" as written by and Tim Wheeler....
The curtain is dropping
I Stand in the fading lights of my summer
My heart is breaking
As the happiest time of my life is ending

I never laughing
Only forgetting
As I lose my memory
The sun is for the last time setting

All the time it takes
My whole life could never last that long
It's sad but it's true so I must get on
With my short life meandering on and on
Into inexistance

Now I'm dreaming
Of someone so precious
The world's too cruel to
Hold her in its arms and hatefully break her

Now I'm leaving
Standing at the front door for the last time
I was coasting in a dream world
But smiling faces are no more

All the time it takes
My whole life could never last that long
It's sad but it's true so I must get on
With my short life meandering on and on
Into inexistance

If you're coasting
If you're sailing
If you're dreaming
You can be my friend we can dream together

If you're coasting
If you're smiling
If you're nowhere
Hide your face till no one's looking

All the time it takes
My whole life could never last that long
It's sad but it's true so I must get on
With my short life meandering on and on
Into inexistance

I try so hard
But I can never have her back again
I lost it all and she heard me cry
And she knows so well
That it's sad but it's true so I must get on
With my short life been gathering on and on
Into inexistance

If you like me
If you're like me
If you're coasting
I will dream with you

    General Commentgreat song to listen to while on a road trip. I think it's talking about how the ending of summer sucks.

    General CommentI love this song. It actually was part of their early stuff, as they wrote it at 16 I think, but it only was released on their B-Side cd, Intergalactic Sonic 7''.
    This is such a teenage song: Tim says he wants to find someone different, like he himself is different from all the others: "if you're dreaming you can be my friend we can dream together."
    And the beginning is just like every teenager - and everyone - feels like at the end of the summer.
