Told them they would stay young
Now they see the sun
The night´s on the run right before the rise
Black mascara´s running from their eyes

Meaning

She has been lied to, and now she is facing the truth and the night life as well as the fast life which she has come to know has abandoned her. While her calm, easy, tranquil way of living which she considered boring and “average” has not.

And now she realized that the night life never wanted her.
