Dedicated to long distance love & keeping the faith.


Verse 1 – Before I go away, there’s something I should say.
That there’s more to me & you.
The further out I stray, the more it makes me think, (of) how I long to be with you.
Verse 2 – The more I roll as one, the more I want to run,
my fingers through your hair.
If I could find a way, for you & I to play,
out in the Sun again.
Chorus 1 – Have you ever contemplated, in the recess of your mind, that someday we’d meet again.
That maybe in the end, we’d be lying in the Sunset.
Chorus 2 – Have you ever contemplated, in the recess of your soul, that someday we’d see the Sun.
That maybe when we’re done, we’d be together in the Sunset.
