I've talked to the angels,
they can't make it out tonight,
they crossed there hearts and
hoped we make it out alive.

That dress is perfect for,
this dance on the ballroom floor
to bad it ends in tragedy,
please tell me what your thinking
or are you as scared as me?

Were going down
there's nothing that can stop this now.

Captain captain we are sinking
can't you see that everyones screaming?
we're going down were going down.
When I die will you close my casket
make it glass so I can see who cared.

you knew this all along;
to little and to late.
these seas wont stop us now
tonight we both go down.

Cover your eyes!

Captain captain we are sinking
can't you see that everyones screaming?
we're going down were going down
when I die will you close my casket
make it glass so I can see who cared

(boys and girls, please close your eyes, for this time both lovers die)

    "When I die will you close my casket?
    Make it glass so I can see who cared."

    General Commentthis might sound stupid, but this song sort of reminds me of The Titanic.

    because those two people fell in love on the ship, and then it hit a glacier and started to sink and a bunch of people died. and before that, they danced in the ballroom.
    except it says both lovers die, but only one of them actually died.

    it's just my opinion though.

    General Commenti agree with dramatics
    but i think its more of a realationship is ending song instead of a tragic ending between two lovers who are inseperatable...my opinion
