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 gunna 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 vest
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 (X4)

    Its meaning to me is that you could get dumped at any second.. Not even knowing it. And both of the partners could be acting totally normal and happy. But one has just had enough..

    Wow she just broke up with him and he didn't even see it coming. And the whole world is moving like nothing has changed, and he doesn't know how to get past this moment. If the light turns green he won't know how to go, he is stuck at the red light, stuck at her goodbye
