When we were kids, we hand painted strawberries on a swing
Every moment was so precious, then
I'm still kicking it, I'm daydreaming on a strawberry swing
The entire Earth is fighting, all the world is at its end
Just in case, an atom bomb, comes falling on my lawn
I should say and you should hear I've loved
I've loved the good times here, I've loved our good times here

Say hello, then say farewell to the places you know
We are all mortals, aren't we? Any moment this could go
Cry, cry, cry, even though that won't change a thing
But you should know, you should hear, that I have loved
I have loved the good times here, and I will miss our good times

Spaceships are lifting off of a dying world
And millions are left behind while the sky burns
There wasn't room for you and I, only you, goodbye, goodbye

    General CommentI love this song cause everytime Frank says "We are all mortals aren't we? Any moment we could go" I want to cry, and then he says "Cry Cry Cry.. even though that wont change a thing"..
    SO damn beautiful such pure emotion

    General CommentIt's kind of sad and uplifting at the same time and I love that sort of thing. And right on cue, when he sings "Cry, cry, cry," I do.

    But the thing that gets me the most is the alarm clock buzzing at the end like it was all a dream.

    My Interpretationi think the song is about a feeling or memory he once had, and then the alarm woke him up, realizing it was all just a dream.

    I love how he adds so much emotion to the song, and how he added Coldplays part :)
