Sir Percival Blakeney This is my new favorite chorus of any song. Play it loud ❤️ Favorite track: The Speed of Light.

blinnen My favorite new band of 2020 returns in 2021 with their best song yet! I loved the cinematic qualities of their song "The Sun, The Stars, The Shine" - but I think that "Speed of Light" blows that one away when it comes to drama! Von's programming and synth work is so crisp and beautiful, while Rob created a fantastic melody which is made even better by his incredible voice. It's only February, but I know this song will be on my Top 10 of 2021 list when I compile it in December.

schubert The boys did it again. I’m from the generation of a radio edit song, extended version and instrumental. This really takes me back and I have this song on repeat today and it just gets better and better. Much different than their last single so it sound fresh to the ears. Hope they continue to press forward and give us more form their collaboration. Get it, you won’t regret it. Favorite track: The Speed of Light (12-inch Extended Mix).

Running out of time Breaking down inside Need a place to go A place to hide Building up the walls Blocking out the light Is it any wonder that we fight We’re falling down I never want to see you cry again Let’s break it down I only want to see you fly again Now the world is on fire You and I will need somewhere new to go Solitude and desire No illusion just you and me alone (x2) Counting down the time To lifting off the ground We can have it all The speed of sound Reaching for the light To find a brand new home Need to find a place to call our own We’re getting out I never want to see you cry again Just one way out I only want to see you fly again Now the world is on fire You and I will need somewhere new to go Solitude and desire No illusion just you and me alone (x2) The speed of light It’s the only way to go The satellite It’s the only place we know

Lyrics:

Running out of time
Breaking down inside
Need a place to go
A place to hide
Building up the walls
Blocking out the light
Is it any wonder that we fight

We’re falling down
I never want to see you cry again
Let’s break it down
I only want to see you fly again

Now the world is on fire
You and I will need somewhere new to go
Solitude and desire
No illusion just you and me alone (x2)

Counting down the time
To lifting off the ground
We can have it all
The speed of sound
Reaching for the light
To find a brand new home
Need to find a place to call our own

We’re getting out
I never want to see you cry again
Just one way out
I only want to see you fly again

Now the world is on fire
You and I will need somewhere new to go
Solitude and desire
No illusion just you and me alone (x2)

The speed of light
It’s the only way to go
The satellite
It’s the only place we know

Hertzog works in his home studio outside Philadelphia and Rowe works out of his home studio in Seattle. ... more
