  • So this is how it ends
    This is where it all goes down
    This is what "I don't love you" feels like
    It ain't the middle of the night
    And it ain't even raining outside
    It ain't exactly what I had in mind
    For goodbye

    At a red light
    In the sunshine, on a Sunday
    Nothin' to say, don't even try

    Some are comin' home
    Some are leavin' town
    While my world's crashin' down on a Sunday
    In the sunshine
    At a red light

    I thought she was gonna say
    Somethin' about that couple kissin' crossin' the street
    Or somethin' about this beautiful day
    But she just looked me in the eye
    Said it's over
    Didn't try to lie
    Or pick a fight
    I might have seen it comin' thata way

    But at a red light
    In the sunshine, on a Sunday
    Nothin' to say, don't even try

    Some are comin' home
    Some are leavin' town
    While my world's crashin' down on a Sunday
    In the sunshine
    At a red light

    There's a momma calmin' down a little baby in the backseat
    in front of me
    There's an old man dressed in his Sunday best just waitin' on green
    But I can't see,
    gettin' past

    This red light
    In the sunshine on a Sunday
    Nothin' to say, don't even try

    Some are comin' home
    Some are leavin' town
    While my world's crashin' down on a Sunday
    in the sunshine (at a red light)

    At a red light in the sunshine on a Sunday
    Nothin' to say, don't even try

    Some are comin' home
    Some are leavin' town
    While my world's crashin' down
    On a Sunday
    In the sunshine
    At a red light
    At a red light
    At a red light
