Lyrics

Running in the sand
Living on the land 
The salty breeze was in our eyes 
We stood beneath the dragonflies and danced all night

We polished all the chrome
On our rusty little home 
We slept all night in parking lots 
We tied our hearts in double knots, so tight
So free, so right 

	Remember when
	We were just cherubs in our tender skins
	Waiting patiently for life to begin

Flowing so free
Blowing in the breeze 
The songs we sung so long ago 
With whiskey and an afterglow, we shined like new

But there along the way
Something seemed to change 
As weeks turned into months we knew 
As life caught up we slowly grew, apart
And untied our hearts 

	The summer went away and the skies went gray 
	We slowly ran out of things to say 
	The river turned into drought 
	Our time was fading out 

	Defeated and alone, we returned back home 
	Like a bird without a wing who had never flown 
	Surrendered to, suspended dreams 

Remember when 
You walked away in the December wind 
I felt the stinging on my pale skin 
I knew that things would never be the same again 

Remember when 
The clouds rolled in and then the sunlight dimmed 
And what will be, it killed what might have been

The first time I listened this song, something about it caught my ear. I've listened to the album several times through now, and I still can't get enough of this song. I really like the way the poppy upbeat verses and chorus contrast the darker and more intense bridge.

I feel the same way as Alex. On this song I've heard through more times than I can remember now and it touches my heart every time.

This song reminded me so much of a failed long-distance relationship. It's my new *getting-over-it* song.

I love the lyrics of this one, but my skills at discerning sound are still not quite up to par with the music itself. It's not standing out to me as well as Let It In did on a musical scale. This by no means is a criticism. It's just how my ability to process and understand sound is currently not working out too well with this song. If there's ever a video of it like Let It In has, let me know. That might also be playing a role.

I've recently taken to listening to your music. A lot. And by that, I mean with an almost religious level of devotion; I think the only other music I've listened to on iTunes recently was the Portal 2 Soundtrack... Recently I picked up on Cherubs; I remembered first listening to it, and couldn't believe I'd forgotten it! Currently my favourite song of yours - it was playing in my head throughout my whole exam today :D

I must say, I really enjoyed listening to this song, it is pretty catchy and I love the up-tempo way of it! Keep up the great work, Josh!

Spent 3 days trying to find a decent CC track to use on my showreel and then I found this. Thanks so much for a great track. It'll be on my website soon, naturally with appropriate credit!
