  • Summer moved on
    And the way it goes, you can't tag along
    Honey moved out
    And the way it went Leaves no doubt

    Moments will pass
    In the morning light I found out
    Seasons can't last
    And there's just one thing left to ask

    Stay, don't just walk away
    And leave me another day
    A day just like today
    With nobody else around

    Friendships move on
    Until the day you can't get along
    Handshakes unfold
    And the way it goes, no one knows

    Moments will pass
    In the morning light I found out
    Reasons can't last
    So there's just one thing left to ask

    Stay, don't just walk away
    And leave me another day
    A day just like today
    Stay, don't just walk away
    With nobody else around

    Reasons can't last
    And there's just one thing
    Left to ask

    Stay, don't just walk away
    And leave me another day
    A day just like today
    Stay, don't just walk away
    With nobody else around

  • Reese from Atlanta, GaI love the lyrics in this one. They're about changes we don't expect. Guess the melody rhymes with this idea as there's this pause and unexpected break in every chorus.
    Not too many songs are written on this topic and are this good, IMHO
