The night, after the night, after the night is gone
And after they're gone, after they're gone, they're gone.

And half of us is lovers missing lovers,
And half of us is lovers missing out.

And after the night, after the night, the eye of the storm in your mouth and you're gone
And after they're gone, after they're gone, it's out.

And half of us is lovers losing lovers,
And half of us is lovers losing out.

The heartbroken sound of my town beats the heartbreaking sound of your town.

After they're gone, after they're gone, after they're gone, they're gone.
A happy accident, the eye of the storm in your mouth, a happy house.

And half of us is lovers missing lovers,
And half of us is lovers missing out.

Happy now?

The heartbroken sound of my town beats the heartbreaking sound of your town.

And half of us is lovers losing lovers,
And half of us is lovers losing out.

Happy now?

The heartbroken sound of my town beats the heartbreaking sound of your town.

The heartbreaking sound of my town beats the heartbreaking sound of your town.

Stop.

    My OpinionThis song is how I feel at the moment, I have just broken up with my partner after a year and a half... The guy I like atm seems to be more interested in other guys... so he is out there having 1 night stands and I'm out in bars losing out, not getting lucky... well not getting lucky with the right people.

    Falling out of love sucks... this song is so true. also I have just moved towns too my ex he is 'your' and I am 'my' town...

    Its just how how this song is making me feels atm

    General CommentI think this song might be confessional? Like the 'half of us' is literally them as two halves, and their experiences... and the differences in where they come from (heartbreaking sounds of your town, etc). The bits about happy accidents and referring to 'after they've gone' (i.e, when they're not in public) how they might be different to the personas they have...
