"Twilight" as written by and Clayton Stroope Scott Lee Jason....
I recall a long farewell and a time to choose
So we part like rivers baby, yeah like rivers do
But I still talk about you though and wonder
How it is your life will unfold

Show me what it looks like
Outside your window at twilight
Show me what it looks like

I recall drivin' home, this ain't gonna hit me till God knows when
You know I feel it in my bones and I wear it on my skin
But there is no use in right or wrong
When a heart must go where it belongs

[Chorus: ]
Show me what it looks like
Outside your window at twilight
Is it me that you see dancing on a line,
Singin? I could be yours if you would be mine
C?mon grow old with me and surely you will see

I remember thinking, boy you must be dreaming
So hold on, hold on, before it's all gone
And I do remember thinking
That your world will go on spinning
Without me now, so c'mon, c'mon please

Show me what it looks like
Outside your window at twilight

[Chorus: ]

I recall a long farewell and a time to choose
So we part like rivers baby, yeah like rivers do

    General CommentI love this song because it happened to me. The guy says goodbye for the last time at his girlfriends house. It finally hits him when he gets home that its over. It drives him crazy that its over now, and he is trying to tell her that if they got back together everything would get better. He just wants her to see that, but he knows that even after breaking up her world will still keep spinning but his won't because something is missing. In the end, he says we should just part rivers, but he says it to himself it seems like. This song is like my past relationship in a nut shell :(...i miss her.

    General CommentI love this song. When I first heard it, it reminded me of going off to college. Maybe two people in a relationship or maybe even just two really good friends - either way one had to leave and pursue other things in his/her life. They had to say goodbye for now. And as they were driving home they realized the great significance this other person held in their heart. It sadden him/her that after they left, their other half would just keep living their life while he/she was consumed by thoughts of the relationship which once was. Hence the entire chorus which I understand to be like a "just wait for me to come back ... we could be greatness if you can just wait for me" type of thing.

    General Comment When i first heard this song I was like Wow,this song has a lot in common with the movie"Twilight". Some of the lines like "Cmon grow old with me and surely you will see" it's similar to what he says at the end of the movie. But after I realized it was first released in like 2003, I was like never mind!Love this song though. It's one of my favorites of Thriving Ivory other than Angels on the Moon and Kiss The Rain.

    My OpinionI love this band so much. Each song is filled with meaning unlike other crap music that just sing about nothing in particular and call it music.
    Anyways i've also wanted to know what exactly does:
    "Show me what it looks like outside your window at twilight"
    mean. Because this song is about goodbye and farewells and i don't see how that line really fits the song but then again maybe i don't understand what it means.
