I agree with VickyD that the most heartbreaking part of the song comes right after this verse, but this paints a picture in my mind that is impossible to shake. An innocent moment - a date with your sweetheart - quickly turns into a nightmare that is very obviously not going to end well. Such a sad song.

This is probably the most heartbreaking part in a song. The description is incredibly vivid. To be in the middle of the road, holding someone's head and realizing that the person is sharing his/her last words and the kiss that will come between the two will be the last one. There is no turning back from that.
