And then it was over and we took our applause. We passed the peace pipe and thought no more About the scenes that were missing, about the lines we had crossed. And we smiled at each other and knew that the moment was lost.
I let you snuff out the candles, I let you blow out the flame, And I knew that this time it would never be the same. The smiles you had wavered, tears welled in your eyes And I looked and I knew that this magic it was only a sign For sunsets on empire it was only a dream. I knew that it was broken when I heard you scream I know you can't believe it. it meant nothing at all. And we looked at each other and we smiled and the moment was gone. Sunsets on empire is this really the end Sunsets on empire left with a friend Could have been a lover, could have been a wife But when it comes right down to it all I want is a life, Just a life.
You said it never mattered. you said it's just a thrill. You couldn't beat it. another bitter pill. It never was a habit. a one off just for sure. You never really thought it out but I hoped that one time That you'd come back for more.
Sunsets on empire that's where I am Sunsets on empire that's all we have. To face a new beginning when you're so close to the end And you looked at me gently and smiled, Would you still be my friend?
You started to smile Is this really the end? Is this really the end? Sunsets on empire The sun sets on empire
