Everywhere life happens to everyone.

Sometimes, when the day is over, reflection
might bring saddest times to mind. This song is about those
feelings.

Lyrics

Summer. When the day is over
there’s a heart a little colder;
someone said goodbye,
but you don’t know why.
Somewhere there is someone keeping
all the tears they have been weeping,
someone said goodbye,
but you don’t know why.

Is there a reason
why a broken heart begins to cry?
Is there a reason
you were lost although you don’t know why?
Give me a reason
why you never want to say goodbye.
If there’s a reason,
I don’t know why.

Always looking for a meaning,
all the time you keep believing,
but I don’t know why
you won’t say goodbye.
Even when the sun is shining
you don’t see the silver lining,
but I don’t know why
you won’t say goodbye.

Is there a reason
why a broken dream can never fly?
Is there a reason
you believe and then you close your eyes?
Give me a reason
why you hide away so much inside.
If there’s a reason,
I don’t know why.

Is there a reason
why a broken heart begins to cry?
Is there a reason
you were lost although you don’t know why?
Give me a reason
why you never want to say goodbye.
If there’s a reason
I don’t know why.
I don’t know why.
I don’t know why.
I don’t know why.

The book included in the ‘Amarantine’ presentation box gives a different version of the lyrics.
The first line reads "Somewhere when the day is over" instead of "Summer. When the day is over."
