Another lonely seaside town
Where the seasons closed it down.
But if you close your eyes
You can almost hear the sounds of crowds gone by.
Another year youâ€™ll all be here
Falling in love and watching sunsets and sunrises.
Itâ€™ll be grand and just what you planned
â€™til tomorrow comes and youâ€™ve said your last goodbyes.
He says heâ€™ll write, but he wonâ€™t write
And you will waste your time
So stay the fuck home and greet everyone with goodbye.
On this lonely winterâ€™s day
While all the crowds were still away
I realized the attraction
To temporary miles and holidays.
Boardwalk dreams all boarded up
Another souvenir made to be broken.
Chasing the sun isnâ€™t my kind of fun.
Iâ€™d rather sit and catch snowflakes on my tongue.
When summers gone I wonâ€™t be sad
As you cling on to all the good times that youâ€™ve had
â€™cause being alone isnâ€™t really all that bad.
Donâ€™t ever tell anyone anything
Or else youâ€™ll wind up missing everybody.
Donâ€™t ever tell anyone anything.
