lyrics

The Chesapeake below
These fumbled hands and nervous smiles.
We medicate and stumble
To find the courage to talk aloud.

In the streetlight silhouette
Your neon halo shines so bright
While the radio cried "Young hearts be free tonight."

So tell me how'd we end up here?
We all want to feel something
Even if it’s only for a moment.
Tell me what happened to our dreams
We had when we were young?
We’re never looking back.

Tonight, these echoes of our lives
Are calling out don’t surrender.
Tonight, these jukebox 45's
are calling out don’t surrender.

Well I am just a bit part in this movie of your life,
While the night brigade roll on
Out on highway 95.
We’re carving out our lives
on these counterfeit guitars,
While the ghosts of our past ring down the boulevard.

So tell me how'd we end up here?
We all want to feel something
If it’s only for a moment.
Tell me what happened to our dreams
We had when we were young?
We’re never looking back.

Tonight, these echoes of our lives
Are calling out don’t surrender.
Tonight, sad songs and whiskey nights
are calling out don’t surrender.

We grew up chasing sunsets,
Now we both just shut our eyes.
We were young and oh so bold
And torn apart by county lines.

Tonight, these echoes of our lives
Are calling out don’t surrender.
Tonight, from the basements and the dives
We’re calling out don’t surrender.
