Before the Let Down

Vertical Horizon release an album called ‘Burning the days’ on September 22, 2009.

AND IT’S SO FUCKING AWESOME BUT I JUST GET TO HEAR IT LATELY~!!! WTF~!!!??

anyway, i think i’m a big fan of Vertical Horizon.

i mean, i like almost all of their songs back dated from ‘Everything You Want’.

it’s just play and play and i can’t get sick of it. i just love it.

Vertical Horizon was formed in 1991,by Matthew Scannell and Keith Kane; after graduation in 1992 the duo self-released their debut album There and Back Again. Recorded in Matt’s old high school (Deerfield Academy) over a period of a few weeks, Matt and Keith played all the instruments on the album, and split songwriting and lead vocal duties.
Matt and Keith toured as a duo for the next few years, mostly appearing with similar bands such as Jackopierce. Ready to record again, 1995’s Running on Ice (produced by John Alagia and Doug Derryberry, along with Scannell) showed significant growth in the duo’s songwriting. Though still acoustic based, ROI incorporated other musicians for more of a full band sound. Guests included Derryberry, Jackopierce, and Carter Beauford (of the Dave Matthews Band) on drums. Two songs (Kane’s “Wash Away” and Scannell’s “The Man Who Would Be Santa”) were featured on the 2nd Aware Records Compilation.

i’m seriously hooked with this song. it really remind me of my ex, |v|4*1//3.

anyway, here’s the lyric for ‘Before the Let Down’.

i ate up every word

and i was full and satisfied

you moved heaven into earth

and angels to the summer sky


i tore in to everyday

like a gift beneath the Christmas tree

i just couldn’t wait

for anything you promise me


like the sun

like the moon

like the lazy days just waking up right next to you

and falling back asleep again


dreaming dreams

wishing stars

getting lost in love

and loving everywhere we are


floating in that place

everything is great before the let down


i wasn’t looking in the shadows

too busy living in the light

i don’t care which way the wind blows

as long as the breeze feels right


but you left me in the dark

and it’s been hard finding my way back

the more we drift apart

the more i miss the things we’ll never have


like the sun

like the moon

like the lazy days just waking up right next to you

and falling back asleep again


dreaming dreams

wishing stars

getting lost in love

and loving everywhere we are


floating in that place

everything is great before the let down


the candles have burned away

faded to yesterday

i wanted them to stay


like the sun

like the moon

like the lazy days just waking up right next to you

and falling back asleep again


dreaming dreams

wishing stars

getting lost in love

and loving everywhere we are


floating in that place

everything looks great

when you’re floating in that place

everything is great before you let me down
