We've been doing more distance recording as a group, an extension of our Sunday virtual gatherings.


As we both get a little bronzer
Glisten in concert
Radiate love
When you lean in and kiss me softly
It's like you caught me
Outside myself

Sometimes love won't love you back

Madly in love, though I'm feeling caustic
My mind's exhausted
Thinking too much
If I could settle on the life before me
Instead of what you told me
Way in the past

Sometimes love won't love you back

Love won't always love you back

As we both get a little older
A little bolder
A little gruff
When we kiss, could we make it stronger?
Last a little longer
So we can keep it up?

Love won't always love you back
Love won't always love you back
