Out on the road the traffic slowed down to a crawl
Strobe lights flashin' on the overpass
The tangled steel could not reveal what no one saw
Or how he walked away without a scratch
He thought of her and walked along the exit ramp
He touched the night between two old street lamps.

And every one will touch the night
And every one will touch the night
And every one will touch the night.

Imagine blue dissolve into the empty night
Slowly fadin' no one answerin'
She walked away and left him standing all alone
Between the shadows of his memory
And those who loved and lost will know the way it feels
To touch the night without the one you love.

And every one will touch the night
And every one will touch the night
And every one will touch the night.

    General CommentEspecially powerful song for me as I'd just listened to it the previous day before a good friend of mine was killed in the exact same circumstances.

    My OpinionI think this song is about a relationship coming to a crash and walking away. Even if you didn't understand how or why.

    "Imagine blue dissolve into the empty night"

    the best color at the time can turn to black but we all will "touch the night",
