"fireball" as written by and Jon/paice Lord....
A countdown to, a fireball, in my living room.
Lets go outside, and watch the planets collide.
The stars are kissing, just for us, and through the deep forest.
A ball of crush I'm told, it's a ufo, it's a ufo, that's a ufo.
Invite me, of course I'll come.
You are my shining sun.
Invite me, of course I'll come.
You are my shining sun.
Lets go back home, before I choke, and look through my telescope.
The one I used last night to look through your window.
You were smiling, just for me, yeah I know that's not what it means.
Suffocate in my room, cause I know, I could never be more than a friend to you.
Invite me, of course I'll come.
You are my shining sun.
Invite me, of course I'll come.
You are my shining sun.
I'm coming for her.
A guided missile.
I gotta kiss her.
Oh god I miss her.
Not just anyone, not just anyone, not just anyone, not just anyone.
You're my shining sun, you're my shining sun, you're my shining, shining,
Shining, sun, sun.
No other one, not just anyone, not just anyone, not just anyone.
I'm coming for her.
A guided missile.
May I please kiss her.
Oh god I miss her.
How Pathetic is this, I can't come clean, then the burns will be third degree.
From standing to close, that's the kind of blisters you feel the most.
I've got one month left in summer to feel the sake, and about to I was before you awake.
Been waiting all night, three hours of sleep, and four spent being a creep.
Maybe five weeks wasn't enough, feelin' so sick, feelin' so sick.
So lets make it six, lets make it six, or seven more, or seven more.
I got eight little tricks in a star, and they're just fine, couldn't screw it up
I'm lookin' at nine, I'll never ware again, I'm reachin' up, I'm touching,
Touching sun.

    General CommentThis has been one of my favorite songs for so long, it's so passionate. I'm glad someone posted it here! I used to think it was "about two hours before you awake," but it makes sense that the protagonist would say " and about to [feel the sake (end)] I was, before you awake." I love this song.

    General Commentfrom the liner notes of "The Keep Tryst EP", some corrections:
    chorus line is "a comet clipper, a guided missile, pillowcase kisser, oh god i miss her."
    after "through the deep forest" it should say "a love, a crush untold. its a ufo."
    and epitaph is right. it is "about 2 hours before you awake," and in the preceding line, it should say "1 month left in summer to feel this ache."

    This song is amazing, the best on the EP. just the passion that these guys manage to put out in words, with heavily distorted guitar, and the theme of forsaken or never spoken of love = awesome.

    General CommentIt is "to feel this ache and about two hours before you awake" It does not make sence the other way, he says 2 hours after 1 month and before 3 hours of sleep it makes sense because he is counting to 9
