Liner Notes: 

Verse 1:
I've got a fever that's going up
I'm like a flickering light bulb tonight:
You said it without thinking, like it would mean nothing
But for the rest of my life

Pre-Chorus:
I'll ride constellations
And through the frustration
Devotion will follow us through

It all seems so pointless
Most lives aren't important
I know that it won't matter soon

Chorus:
I want to live forever
Without a second chance
Even if the sun burns out

Though I know I'll die tonight
So I have to tell you
Before the moon goes down

Verse 2:
Let's make a memory we can't forget
For when we're finally not kids anymore
I know what you're doing and three words could ruin
What stars are aligning us for

Pre-Chorus:
Youth takes a moment to splinter apart
Inside the palm of your hand

And time is exhausting
We'll all be forgotten
Apparently that's just the plan

Chorus:
I want to live forever
And ad lib all the lines
Even if the sun burns out

Though I know I'll die tonight
So I have to tell you
Before the moon goes down

*solo*

Nice song. Has a psychedelic feel to it. God lyrics. I like the hook. Trippy melody. Good work.

i hear some bright eyes in it as well. this song defines the the romantic pop song for the 21st century. many exciting melodic and harmonic ideas throughout

Great hookey chorus, lovely harmonies and an all round nice to listen to track.

Like Will was saying, I love the experimental arrangement. Love the feeling your pre-chorus brings, how it contrasts nicely with the first verse and how it already kicks in only 15 seconds into the song -- it's pretty groovy. And I also like that besides this being a really depressing mortality realism vibe, you are on the side of wanting continuation, having hope Smile

Very nice poppy, jangly guitar pop/rock. Well thought out lyrics. I like the way the vocal lines change tempo as you move through the song. Top job.

Okay pretty cool, a lot of good changes in the beat that keep things going. Very crafty and "let's make a memory we can't forget" with some new elements, and that melody. You really went for it, this is actually a great track. Maybe my favorite I've heard from you, I think the extra elements do that and the overall flow of the song. I like this one a lot.
