time itself is bringing down our ride
we're on the ground
we've almost made it
hard to find a way
to say goodbye
and yet the final kiss betrayed it
in the shadow
of the world outside
don't let it darken down your eyes
you never could have
second prize

out into the world
on shaking ground
snd leaving all the lights behind us
from my arms
where no warmth could be found
just the love that had confined us

in the shadow of the things you know
don't ever think of letting go
no, not for
second prize

time is up &
bringing down our ride
we're almost down
the music's ending

    General CommentThe last song on the last Dream Academy album. it ends with the sound of a carnival organ playing and fading out.

    There is a time where every band ends, and members go on to other things. Sometimes, they find a way to say goodbye, and I think that here, DA wanted to say goodbye to each other and their fans and to say thanks for coming along on 'the ride'.

    "The music's ending." A sad, but classy way of saying farewell.
