it's funny how we used to laugh at loud
and how easily we've forgotten who we were.
when the good die young, there was nothing i could do
until that day two desperate hearts were forced to face their fears.

there is no fate but what we make for ourselves
and this day was ours.

so i grabbed her by the hand, looked deep into the eyes and said we're gonna go away for a while
and we never looked back, we knew we had to take this chance, and we ran into the end of the world.

it's funny how we used to laugh out loud
between the headlines and the news reports, no one will ever understand
why we had to sacrifice our dreams just to save us both.

so we stand at the edge of our existance's end and watch the world come crumbling down.
and if we stick together, we'll be forever together and all will be right in this town.

    Songs can have many meanings. The main one of this is that life is short, take chances. Maybe you could interpret it as a guy works up the courage to ask out a girl and they end up getting married. either marriage or end up dying together. Great Song either way. Wester is extremely talented and deserve all the future success.

    With the quotes from the Terminator movies it feels like it could almost be on the soundtrack... it especially seems to relate to the 3rd movie if you've seen it.

    I think its about love.. sacrificing everything just to be together.. Romeo and Juliet scenario? i dunno.. but just from the chorus thats what i get.. at the end.. he speaks.. he says: imagine if you knew you were going to do something important with you're life, something amazing, it may be THE most important thing anyone has ever done, but theres a catch.. something terrible has to happen.. i think they're talking about risks.. taking risks in life..

    Personally, I like the overall imagery of the song. Well, obviously, I guess the quotes give away the meaning of the song itself so there's not much to say.
