"Two Egrets" as written by and Mike Garrigan....
I always thought I'd die
With a rainbow on the skyline
In the backseat of my car

Where it's only you and I
And the pigment flickers slowly
In the corner of your eye

I don't need to be sincere
But, there's something on the skyline
And it makes it kind of clear
That it's you and me together in this world

The way I feel tonight
I could stay with you forever
But nothing lasts forever
I'd hate to let this rainbow die

I always thought I'd cry
With an egret on the shoreline
On the day we said goodbye

But a sentimental song
Keeps me hanging on
It seems that you and I are only
Killing time until the rain blows over

I don't need to be sincere
Because there's something on the skyline
And it makes it kind of clear
That it's you and me together in this world

The way I feel tonight
I could stay with you forever
But nothing lasts forever
I'd hate to let this rainbow die

Our colors fall down, down
Our colors fall down, down

Killing time until the rain blows over
Killing time until the rain blows over
Killing time until the rain blows over
Killing time until the rain blows over

I don't need to be sincere
'cause there's something on the skyline
And it makes it kind of clear
That it's you and me together in this world

The way I feel tonight
I could stay with you forever
Can we make it last forever?
I'd hate to let this rainbow die

Our colors fall down, down
Our colors fall down, down

    General CommentHow has nobody commented on this song, or for that matter, any Collapsis songs? They are amazing. I discovered them back in the Napster days, cuz they were one of the few bands you could always find. Anyway so many classic lines in this one- a sentimental song keeps me hanging on, i'd hate to let this rainbow die- all good stuff. It's a shame that Collapsis hasn't hit the big time...maybe someday.

    General CommentI am suprised as well that few people have discovered this band, even though I only know about it through their live october with Antheneum. By the way, an egret is some sort of heron.
