about

Thanks to Chris Taylor on vocals, Ryan Bowman on bass, Michael Ramos on accordion and Michael Bahan on drums.

Jake came up with the idea and hook for this song. He brought Chris and I into the studio one afternoon and we sat down, wrote our parts around the theme and recorded it before heading off to a gig. The lyrics had more levels of meaning than we realized at the time. But that's the way it always goes...

lyrics

We divide, our love, our light
In confusion we have faded, into fragments separated
On the path, we go, we forget, we know
All the parts that we are playing
Are just parts within a whole

Let us decend in spirals (let us decend)
Time breaks the fall (time breaks the fall)

Find your way around the sun
Theres no emptiness around you
Just the space you havent walked through
From the chaos we are one (we are one)
Through felicity and sorrow
We only chase tomorrow round the sun

Im in need of a friend
To always know this much, but never feel your touch
Soften up this heart of stone
I was born a raging spirit
Inside a cage of skin and bone

Let us decend in spirals (let us decend)
Time breaks the fall (time breaks the fall)

Find your way around the sun
Theres no emptiness around you
Just the space you havent walked through
From the chaos we are one (we are one)
Through felicity and sorrow
We only chase tomorrow round the sun

are you getting closer cause all that i can see
is a dark black rain cloud coming down on me
all our rage and glory turning our fears ino love
we can come together but will it be enough

Laura Marie San Antonio, Texas

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
