A song about the people we love and the memories we made
There's a bonfire on the beach, flames flicker like ghosts
Two kids holdin' hands from opposite coasts
Palms catchin' the breeze of mixed CDs
As they watch the show that's overhead

Watching the future chase their past
Watching the present fade too fast
As the sun goes down on this seaside town
And all the things they never said...

Yeah, he knows what he sees when he looks in her eye
And he can't explain it, so he's not gonna try
But what can he do to keep from saying goodbye?
And how does his face light up as he starts to cry?

'Cause right now, they're in the best of places
It's no surprise, smiles stuck on their faces
No, they can't ignore what their lives have in store,
But they've got this moment forevermore

Doin' what they can to slow the world's turn
All they can keep are snapshots and sunburn
They've lost too much time to idle cares and awkward stares
But now they don't care so much
It all goes away when their lips touch

Yeah, she knows what she sees when she looks at this guy
And she can't explain it, so she won't even try
She'd do anything to keep from saying goodbye
And she looks so pretty when her eyes aren't dry...

'Cause right now, they're in the best of places
It's no surprise, smiles stuck on their faces
No, they can't ignore what their lives have in store,
But they've got this moment forevermore

Yeah, they know what they see in the stars in their eyes
And words just can't compare, so why would they try?
And here on the eve of their final goodbyes,
They're still riding strong on emotional highs

'Cause tomorrow, they'll leave the best of places
And somehow, smiles snuck on their faces
Though they can't ignore what their lives have in store,
They know they'll keep feelin' how they felt before
And they've got this feeling forevermore

When the world just keeps on spinning...
