"Palms" as written by Taylor David Rice, Ryan Clinton Hahn, Matthew James Frazier and Kelcey Paul Ayer....
Leaving to escape
Windmills on the southern plain
Hum your name

49 palms muddled over my words
Wait for more

Sleep alone
Start all over

Visions flood my mind
So the sins come alive
In the blurring light

Thought I saw your face
Watching broken fingers placed
Blind now we've chased

Sleep alone
Start all over

A fire then the flood
Could something wrong be something good?
Do you think you should?

I would rather love
Someone I couldn't touch
Than give us up

Sleep alone
Start all over

So I dwell
On going wild again

I love what you do
But I can't get out from under you
So I don't try

Sleep alone
Start all over

So I dwell
On going wild again

    General CommentThis song hits home for me.

    For me it's about that impossible space we sometimes find ourselves in after being in love with someone and they have moved on or the timing isn't just right.

    But this love isn't emotional only, it's physical and raw. The narrator is consumed...the most telling line for me is:
    I would rather love
    Someone I couldn't touch
    Than give us up

    Giving up on that hope, that feeling of being in love, is the hardest thing of all because it is everything we want. Giving up is letting go.

    So our narrator dwells, they hold on to that hope...

    My favorite song of the album. So beautiful...and a song we can all relate to unfortunately at some point in our life.
