about

Our best attempt at a 2020 pop song.

lyrics

“One day,” he said, “let’s run away.”
“Let’s join the circus and get lost in the parade.
All of my life I’ve been afraid
Of looking back and watching everybody fade.

Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh

One day our time is gonna run out
But we can choose between a whimper or a bang
One day our fire’s gonna burn out
But we don’t have to quit feeding the flame

So we took all we owned and grabbed a bus
Up to the corner of the edge of our lives
Wrote on our suitcases, “or bust.”
It’s now or never who we are is on the line

Ooh Ooh Ooh Ooh

One day our time is gonna run out
But we can choose between a whimper or a bang
One day our fire’s gonna burn out
But we don’t have to quit feeding the flame

One day our time is gonna run out
But we can choose between a whimper or a bang
One day our fire’s gonna burn out
But we don’t have to quit feeding the flame

“One day,” he said, “let’s run away.”
“Let’s join the circus and get lost in the parade.
All of my life I’ve been afraid
Of looking back and watching everybody fade.
