Twin Shadow – To The Top

Twin Shadow is the stage name of American musician George Lewis Jr. Lewis was born in 1983 in the Dominican Republic and raised in Florida. Lewis’s first exposure to music started by singing in his church choir. While growing up, Lewis listened to punk music, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Boyz II Men, Keith Sweat, and Bobby Brown. Around 2000, he moved to Boston and started the band Mad Man Films alongside Joseph Ciampini (drums) (of Hooray For Earth), and Zak Longo (bass) of Before Lazers. Mad Man Films released two records independently. In 2006, not satisfied with recording music for theatre and films, Lewis moved to Brooklyn, NY and started the Twin Shadow project. Twin Shadow was the Rolling Stone Band of the Week on October 7, 2010. Wikipedia®.

Twin Shadow – To The Top

There is an official statement released alongside the track, which you can read below:
What is it when you realize that someone isn’t right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell. It’s not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you. I think because of this feeling we find ourselves constantly wanting to reset, like new years resolutions, like dreaming up moments from the past where the ending flips on its head, like true forgiveness…We just want to say “wait wait wait, this went too far in the wrong direction, can we try that again.”

Twin Shadow – To The Top Lyrics:
You will never belong to me
now i can see the light – That you are
never good at controlling me
now i can see the light shine oh
and i know
and i know
it was blinding you

say life can be long
wanna know
wanna know
wanna know
wanna know
its true
when you say
I want you around
YOU GOTTA MAKE ME BELIEVE YOU

OH I KNOW ITS NOT THE RIGHT TIME TONIGHT
BUT I WON’T MOVE UNTILL THIS STOPS
(we go) BACK TO THE TOP
OH OH
(we go) BACK TO THE TOP

i’m not scared if you run to me
lost like when you where mine
and you can take what you want from me
just offer me your time

Stay, life can be long
wanna know
wanna know
wanna know
wanna know
it’s true
when you say
I want you around
YOU GOTTA MAKE ME BELIEVE YOU
OH I KNOW IT’S NOT THE RIGHT TIME TONIGHT
BUT I WON’T MOVE UNTILL THIS STOPS
(we go) BACK TO THE TOP
OH OH
(we go) BACK TO THE TOP.
