The Chesapeake below, these fumbled hands and nervous smiles
We medicate and stumble to find the courage to talk aloud
And the streetlight silhouette, your neon halo shines so bright
While the radio cried, young hearts be free tonight

So tell me how we end up here
We all want to feel something even if it’s only for a moment
Tell me what happened to our dreams we had when we were young
Never looking back

Tonight, these echoes of our lives, are calling out
Don’t surrender
Don’t surrender
Tonight, these jukebox 45’s are calling out
Don’t surrender
Don’t surrender

Well I am just a big part in this movie of your life
While the night brigade roll on out on highway 95
We’re carving out our lives on these counterfeit guitars
While the ghosts of our past rain down the boulevard

So tell me how we end up here
We all want to feel something even if it’s only for a moment
Tell me what happened to our dreams we had when we were young
We’re never looking back

Tonight these echoes of our lives
Are calling out
Don’t surrender
Don’t surrender
Tonight sad songs and whisky nights
Are calling out
Don’t surrender
Don’t surrender

We grew up chasing sunsets
Now we both just shut our eyes
We’re never looking back now

We were young and oh so bold
And torn apart by counting lights
We’re never looking back

Tonight these echoes of our lives are calling out
Don’t surrender
Don’t surrender
Tonight from the basements and the dives we’re calling out
Don’t surrender
Don’t surrender
