behind the sweet
summer fade
and on a coast
not far away.

sometimes we glide
sometimes we fall
and there are times we dont get up at all.

you had your doubts
we had our rows
said our goodbyes but now were taking vows

behind the sweet
summer fade
youll knock me down like a tidal wave.

i should be gone
cast away
but still id love you
through all peace and hate

in light of all
darkest things
the fire glimmers and the darkness sings....

if you should go
i wont have you to blame for my unhappiness for darker days
when will i learn
its not your fault
breaking down could not be cured by breaking up.

i should be gone
cast away....

forever more
peace and hate
love and war
declare a new state....

yell and shout and kick me out
then forget what we fought about
but dont give up
this storm is passing

    General Commentthis song is lovely.

    I believe it's about having a fall out with a lover but then realizing that no matter what you'll always love them. And that you'll never give up on them.

    General Commenti think it's really awesome how they merge romantic and political themes, using political terms and a metaphor for thie relationship

    "forever more
    peace and hate
    love and war
    declare a new state"

    and in "vote":

    "But we all know, our systems broken
    And I, I'll never vote again"

    General CommentI think this is a true story about them. See they're a couple. They were in a relationship then they broke up, but now they're married.

    General CommentIt's really sad to listen to it... a bit emotional...

    Motivating and soothing but is this to be a motivation break up song or a motivation to get back together?
