Album: The Everglow (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a song about the feeling you get when you're REALLY falling in love, possibly for the first time, or at least you really think you are ("Lately I'm alright, and lately I'm not scared, I figured out, that what you do to me feels like, I'm floating on air," "Now I'm wanting this for sure, and I'll beg for nothing more"). You're always wanting the other person to tell you they feel the same, but you're scared of anything happening too fast ("I don't need to know right now," "Say anything, but say what you mean," "I can't seem to stop this now, even if it's not so clear"). >>

  • Kayla from Amherst, OhMae writes incredible music at all times. I saw them live and it was absolutely amazing. I have never listened to one of their songs that doesn't give me a good feeling inside.
  • Simon from Chattanooga , TnThis song is one of the most incredible ever written; the lyrics dance on an ocean of beautiful notes, while a whispering piano melody brings it together in a forest of wondrous sound.
