"Boomerang" as written by Gianni Luminati, Ryan Marshall, Sarah Nicole Blackwood and Jarrad Kritzstein....
I'm not supposed to miss you 'cause you're not coming back
And I wish I never kissed you so what do you think of that?
What did I get myself into?
In the back of my mind there will always be the catch and the throw away
But this moment's got me thinking I could reach you
And I'm waking up alone and echo the song sung yesterday and begging you to come back home

'Cause you're my BOOMERANG
My repetitious twist of fate
But unexpectedly this time you don't come back to me
Still you go on and on for someone else

This back and forth it gets me going around and 'round
And I'm so worn out and dizzy while you knock the good ones down
Now I want to know the truth "Do you even miss me?"

'Cause in the back of my mind I could always feel you push and pull away
And now I can see that you were leaving me

When you're my BOOMERANG
And I tried so hard to make you stay
Without a doubt I see this time you won't come back to me

So fly, fly, fly like a bird in the atmosphere
Glide, glide let the breeze you're feeling take you there
Fly away from me

In the back of my there will always be the catch and the throw away
But this time I'll let it fly and not try to reach you
Because getting up alone will help me grow my own pair of wings
And the time has come for me to fly

Oh BOOMERANG,
I'm down to let you go
'Cause you're my BOOMERANG
And the fun we had was all in vain
But unexpectedly this time you won't come back to me
Still you go on and on for someone
Go on and on for someone else

Fly, fly, fly like a bird in the atmosphere
Glide, glide let the breeze you're feeling take you there
Ride, ride on the wind that gets you out of here
Fly away from me


Fly... BOOMERANG

    General Commentnice job with the lyrics tennisplyr.

    i don't care much for this song. the lyrics are pretty good but the music sounds like maroon 5. mae has been nothing but a disappointment since after the everglow.

    General CommentI really love this song. They're developing their own sound, not adapting another's. I've really liked the last few songs that they've released--"Embers and Envelopes" (new version), "Somewhere," "The House That Fire Built," and lastly, "Boomerang"! Boomerang sounds really different from old Mae, but I still think that it's great. :)
    Highly anticipating the next few songs from Mae! :D

    General CommentI think DB and Everglow is their "own sound" I think what they are doing now is still unique but I like their older sound much better. a good song nonetheless.

    General CommentI really disagree that DB and Everglow is what identifies Mae. I mean, I can understand that those albums are very in touch with Mae's original ideal, what with the combination of multipe senses and the sound in general being very identifiable, but I found Singularity to be an amazing step forward for them in so far as making music that varies. you can't say you haven't listened to Everglow and had all the songs blend together. That was the idea right, but as great as the songs are, they seem to alike. As for these recent songs, they vary incredibly, and I think that's because of how they're developing them, one by one rather than an album all at once.

    Boomerang is very different from a lot of older Mae stuff. But it's definitely still them. I don't think they are actively trying to change their sound for any reason other than to try to push their boundaries.

    General CommentI think Mae have done a stand up job recovering from the departure of Rob Sweitzer (keyboardist). His absence was pretty obvious on Singularity, but they've managed more than adequately on (m)orning.

    Also, I love how this goes right into Two Birds. Beautiful song.

    Lyric CorrectionWhen he says "So fly, fly, fly like a bird in the atmosphere" I think he's inventing a new word: "atmosfire". Pretty.
