"There's An Arc" as written by and Timothy John Baker....
Don't you swing like a child,
In a tree, on a tire, in 85?
There's an arc that your feet will ride
On the way between hate and that Sunday fire

You look so serious
Oh, you look so serious
The night is serving us
But you look so serious

And this could be our reward
This could be it

This simple Friday night
Where you're loosening your tie
But there's a tightness in your eyes

You look so serious
Why do you look so serious?
The night is serving us
And we're deserving it

And this could be our reward
This could be it
(this could be all we're owed)
(All we're owed, all we're getting)

Cause if we swing like a child
Then we're always colliding this time of night
But our arcs, they could align
(We could align! we could align!)
And over gravity up comes this kicking child

    My Interpretation[and this could be our reward
    this could be it
    this could be all we're owed
    all we're owed, all we're getting]

    I think this is about being happy, because maybe you and I being together, right now, is all the thanks God or whoever, is going to give you for being good. Or, be happy, because being alive right now, today, is all the gift you get.

    General CommentMy favorite song on the CD.
    It's just so fun and happy. There's never a time I don't want to listen to it.

    Song MeaningI think this is a lot like Red Heart in that he is enticing a love interest to relax, let down her guard and just be. Another great song.

    Song MeaningWhen I attended a Hey Rosetta! concert a few years ago, I remember it was at the end of the week and I almost didn't feel like going. I was so tired and felt like I could use a night off. I ended up going to the concert, thankfully, and Tim Baker explained some meaning behind the song.

    He explained how no matter what your day or week was like, when you attend a concert, it's as if your arc is aligning with everyone else's. Doesn't matter if you're young or old or what kind of life you live, music brings everyone together. Even if it's for a short time, you'll forget about whatever is stressing you out and feel a connection with everyone and everything around you.
