i know sometimes, people say it'll be all right.
but i have to think, it's not that way in her mind.
and everything's not fine, so don't tell her it takes time.

cause everywhere she looks, she's reminded of his life

it was dark that night, but she could still see his eyes
shining upon her, the stars in the sky
and it was so bright, giving life to the sky
reminding her lover, of all the color in his life

can you come back down
you two can ride your bikes
and dance, and laugh, and forget about such thing as time

can you come back down
you two can have the nights
and dance, and laugh, and forget about such thing as time

can you come back down
and bring her back a smile
and take her with you
at least I think that's what
she'd like ..

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing.
    Personally, I love John O'Callaghan [from The Maine]'s version more. But the song is brilliant in itself. It's heartbreaking to hear, but you can't stop listening.

    General CommentI like this Nathaniel's version better. I usually prefer the originals. The Maine is just too poppy IMO to get the same message across as Nathaniel/Ivory(?) John's version isn't bad, but it just doesn't hit me the same way. Can't wait till these songs are up for DL.

    General CommentNath's version is way better than Johns. John doesn't even play guitar in his. He sings over all the instrumentals. And I don't see how it's so heartbreaking including when it's a cover. Nathaniel's version is way better and more personal.

    It's a shame this band is getting recognized after all these years because of a pop band. Too bad they broke up.

    General CommentI like both just the same. I think Nathaniel's voice and John's voice are totally different. I'm glad John did the cover because it made me discover Ivory. They just played with my friend's band Bearhug but I missed it
