It was cold that day - When you said goodbye
With your arms reached out - Looking towards the sky
And we stood alone - Never knowing then
That that moment came - And would shortly end
And these were the times and the endless smiles
Where we laughed for days, we would run for miles
Accelerate the corners
Just to do it again

I never thought I would need you more
And I was nervous but not sure what I was nervous for
And the lights went out before I had a chance to say
This is not my day, this is not my day

It was warm that day - When we said hello
With your hands clenched tight - Looking down below
And we stood alone - Almost knowing then
Every moment comes - But the best one’s end
And where are the times we never said no
When we dressed to the till with nowhere to go
And accelerate the corner Just to do it again
