about

The final song on our album, and probably the most mellow. Partly chosen as the album closer because it is a more optimistic and celebratory song than any other on the album by far. Nice to end on a somewhat happy note.

lyrics

The 100 was late and Mayfield was godless
Next to me sat a girl with a violin smile
When she asked I told her that I was going nowhere
And with a legato grin she replied
I’ll meet you there

The tide never lies
The moon’s always on time
And she whispers to me
Sweet nothings
This girl was a sunchild
She ran naked and wild
Through the grass and the trees

We drank rosé and danced around the love tree
Basil pesto, blueberries, gelato and spice
Is all we need

And now we drink only wine
We eat up the stars
I found compassion and love
In the curves of my guitar
She said from stardust we are made
And to dust we will return
The earth will eat our bodies up
Just like a breath
And when it does my dear
I’ll meet you there

The tide never lies
The moon’s always on time
And she whispers to me
Sweet nothings
And now I’m a sunchild
I run naked and wild
Through the grass and the trees
Sweet nothings
And now we dance
And now we love
We know we’ll die
But we won’t cry
