The sun goes down and then she slips away
It gets so lonely after dark
If only we could relive yesterday
Tomorrow always seems so far

The end is near, so much is left to say
The world is getting cold tonight
The traumatized people are so afraid
I smile cause everything's alright

    General CommentI like this song. Sometimes I need a break from all of Hawk Nelson's punky songs. So I listen to this one or "Zero".

    General CommentThe 6th line is incorrect. It should be "The world is getting COLD tonight". Great song in my opinion.

    General CommentLovely song.

    But, I still don't know what this song is about really. In the first part of the song, it almost seems as though someone died and he wants this person back but he knows he can't have the person back. The second part is sort of un-clear to me. Oh well.

    General CommentThis song is about the end of the world. Jason Dunn(lead singer) knows that, when he dies, and the world does finally come to an end, he wont be afraid, because he knows theres more for him in the afterlife, with God.

    General Commentsry guys, add on to my statement above...the first part is about his girlfriend, or wife, and how he is afraid to leave her. then the 2nd verse is just how he knows everything will be alright, if you look at it closely...


    The end is near, so much is left to say[the end of the world is coming, and yet he has so much more he wants to say to her...pretty self explanatory]
    The world is getting Cold tonight[he can really really feel it coming now]
    Traumatized, people are so afraid;[everyone around him is realizing it and are so afraid that it is coming to an end, and afraid to leave their loved ones behind]
    I smile cause everything’s alright.[but he is smiling because he knows everything will be alright in the afterlife, with the lord]
    Thats all from me now

    General CommentI love this song it means (i think) that the world is losing God. when he is talking about she its no one in particularly just a ramdon girl and and the world is falling apart but he cant but smile cuz he knows everything will be ok u kno and the only reason why they named it "Fourteen" is because they wanted 14 songs but two two songs didnt make the album thats the only reason They talked about it in their interview. but this song touches my heart if u read the very bottom on Hawk Nelson's poster from their new cd "Smile, It's the end of the WORLD" IT SAYS "THIS RECORD IS A POSITIVE RESONSE FOR A NEGATIVE WORLD" how cool is that
