Track Name: If I've Taken Too Long
we're seconds from the start
never let your dreams fall apart
breathe in the twilight of a distant star
when you realign with Gemini
shine so high
leaving the light on in the night sky
if anything breaks over the greatest handshake
we wouldn't misplace
any of the grace
when you realign with the sultans of sunshine
leave the rewind on our mind
like open doors
the universal reversal reminds
us of familiar places
we couldn't fake it
it was written on our faces

climb up reach out spiral on
climb out of time cause we, we belong
in the sunshine state
we'll never wait
climb up holding on
to the edge of where we belong
cause I might be wrong
if I've taken too long
to realize how to bring you along

if I'm holding it
if I have to forget to
have to regret to
see you
it wouldn't take too long
now that I am going to
gonna need you
Track Name: The Boom Swing
take another step closer to believe
the spectrum's the colors covering me
wrapped in ultra-violet
the frequencies bring the silence
holding your breath until you dream
pull it from the depths of your memories
like the giving tree
that gave me a gorgeous leaf
trapped in the beauty of your heart
somewhere in the middle lost the art
though recovered floating up on our mission
up up up up up and away
until we find our brand new day
cause the glory is in the gray

and I know you've seen the blue
and I know you felt it too
like you were on the spiral
would you tell me
if it made you smile
protect the ones left
project the ones that held their breath
cause I've been contemplating
the boom swing
