I've seen those eyes
I've watched them close at night
And you breathe in
And you breathe out again

Sister's coming over
And I'm afraid to tell her
Secrets that I know

Painting without colors
Tends to make it better
Bleaches out the world

Was it the end
The end that kept you up till the morning?
Was it the boy
The boy who stole your heart?
Summer goes on and then dies quick
Without much warning
All things ordinary

Full from the dinner
But feeling somewhat thinner
Aching in the chest
Kids behind the windows
Calling out the answers
To questions never asked

Was it the end
The end that kept you up till the morning?
Was it the boy
The boy who stole your heart?
Summer goes on and then dies quick
Without much warning
All things ordinary

Will you stay near me now?
Don't leave this town until we figure out
Between the two of us we're strong enough
I feel that in your touch

I've seen those eyes
I've watched them close at night
What queen comes in
Always goes out again

Will you stay near me now?
Don't leave this town until we figure out
Between the two of us we're strong enough
I feel that in your touch...

    General Commentthis whole album.. is very... nostalgic to me. the 2 singers add such a harmony to the music. the vocals fit tighter than ever with the music.

    General Commentthat no matter what happens things will be back the same. things will happen that feel like they won't change and then before you know it all things are ordinary.

    General Commentthis is definetely an awesome song by the anniversary, one of my favorites, I think it's about a brother and sister, and how they are growing up, and different things are changing in both of their lives, but no matter what they still have the bond and relationship between them. I don't know that's just me
