"Avalanche" as written by and Kevin Ray Nicholas Petricca....
Eighteen thousand-year-old soul
Midwest shooting star
In the days she waits
But she moonlights rock'n'roll
Play the rain dance with her guitar
Sometimes you only get one chance

You gotta look in your eyes
I knew you in past life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops
Ships pass in the night
I don't want to wait 'til the next life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops

Last call and everybody's watching
Her voice screams out like a storm
Sometimes the past echoes in the future
Started long before we were born
Sometimes you only get one chance

You got a look in your eyes
I knew you in past life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops
Ships pass in the night
I don't want to wait 'til the next life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops

Universe won't wait for you
It's do or die, whatcha gon, gon, gonna to do

You got a look in your eyes
I knew you in past life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops

You got a look in your eyes
I knew you in past life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops
Ships pass in the night
I don't want to wait 'til the next life
One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops

One glance and the avalanche drops
One look and my heartbeat stops

    General CommentI think the song's trying to accentuate how special this chance at love is because the two happened to exist in the same lifetime with everything leading up to him seeing her,and there's this voice screaming out to him to take it,as if it's his own voice but from a past life trying to get him to not make the same mistake again. We're pretty sure he takes the moment. :) This is such a nice song ugh,so upbeat and romantic. "One glance and the avalanche drops / One look and my heartbeat stops" definitely illustrates the gravity of seeing someone you're so in love with. Awesome concept.
