It's Friday night I've waited all week for tonight And since first light I couldn't sit still, no, cause I feel… I feel alright We're packed in tight There's no end to this crowd in sight When we take flight I can't explain it no I just feel… I feel alright I'm laced up tight Cause now it's me out there tonight The blinding light It doesn't phase me no cause I feel… I feel alright The crowd ignites I've dreamt about this all my life In my own right I've made it this far now and I feel… I feel alright

No other feeling can compare To that anxious anticipation Under the blank cover of darkness Yea I know nothing good comes about being out at this hour But no I won’t turn in now, keep it down, we will never be found This time we'll light it up We’ll make a scene This town’s not bright enough We’ll make it beam So as we’re racing through the dark Just remember this elation I never want to live without it Yea I know nothing good comes about being out at this hour But hey that’s fine, in my mind, we’re inclined just to have a good time

I’m gonna wait here by the telephone… Imagine what it’d sound like with you on the other side The dusty window blinds spill light in from outside But Imma keep em drawn until I get you on the line It should be soon… Don't wanna miss you I'm still waiting by the telephone… The room is warming up now and I melt into a recline Thought you'd be back by now, it's far beyond the time You said you'd have me on the line But still I wait… Don't wanna miss you

Dream drifter on a lazy day The feel of summertime’s grown old Just gonna let my mind unfold Not looking for a place to stay Slipstreaming off an impulse now Unwinding while I cover ground Your mind was bright and beautiful I wish I could’ve seen much more But there’s just too much to explore We are Dream drifters, we aren't here to stay We’ve been on the run here for a moment now The heavy lifters, they are on their way We’ll leave it even better than we found it now Still motionless, I forge ahead Don’t think I’ve ever gone this far I wonder where the boundaries are Saw you again in early spring I wonder whether you saw me You looked as though you were set free

We can keep it on Till the morning light drips in warm through the dawn Dew is on the lawn We don’t need a wink just get dressed and it’s on And it’s on Morning’s never long Let’s go out and drift down through Camelot Arms Needn’t wake your Mom We’ll be back before she even knows we’re gone And we’re gone Wind’s at our backs so we’re golden Let’s gun it now Time can’t be bought so we stole it Let’s run it out Down beside the stream We can dip our feet underneath while we dream Never losing steam Still don’t need a wink just one breath in between Our next scheme

Now, I lay me down Slumber bound Knowing I’m safe and sound As long as you’re ‘round I can’t see you, still, I know you’re there You’re right down the stairs And I can hear the TV bleeding through Is it watching you? Tell me, who’s watching you? When you close my door I’m always sure It will open once more Your morning light pouring in So warm on my skin To wake me once again I can’t see you, still, I know you’re there By this i will swear Oh lord, hear my prayer That long after your TV shows are through You’ll be watching me But who’s watching you?

Feeling wonderful, no matter what else happens, I’m gonna stay true I have never seen the sky, here from your rooftop, look any more blue Nor have you I don’t know why everything, from here, seems so clear But if i know anything, this must be real Time is plentiful, let’s stay up here all night, we've got nothing to do I have never seen the stars, here from your rooftop, that must be some view Nor have you

about

Stay True started out as little more than an exercise to try to approach songwriting from a different perspective. Years of using the medium as a therapeutic and introspective outlet suddenly felt tired and uninspired. I wanted to revert back to a time where everything felt new and exciting again. A time where I couldn't tell a 4-track from an MPC, and the only kind of samples I cared about were the ones you got in the cologne section at JCPenney. Where both Michael and Montell Jordan held equal weight at the center of my universe. Where the anticipation of a sleepover at my best friend’s house, filled with Mighty Ducks, F-Zero, and maybe a few bottle rockets, was enough to make the two hours I had to wait for a ride over there feel like a year. There's no doubt that time moved much slower back then. After all, one full year was a tenth of my entire life at that point. This was a joyous time that I’d always reflected upon fondly, before puberty gave way to teenage angst, and riding bikes was replaced by chasing girls. This mindset was a thrill to revisit, and the more I went there, the more memories I uncovered. Each one like a favorite song that gets buried in the back of your mind, oblivious to the fact that it ever even existed until someone hums the tune, and at that moment, you realize that if they hadn’t, it likely would have been lost forever. These songs are not meant to be nostalgic, but rather a means to relive the joy and excitement, naivety and innocence, of youthful adolescence. - Greg Puglese, Mock Suns
