Moonrunner83 & Megan McDuffee - You & I

from Completely Mental Volume 1 by The State of Synth



From the album "Hearts on Fire" (

Have you ever lost love? Have you ever felt alone? Have you ever felt as though you were spinning like fire among the stars? Have you ever been so happy you could burst into a billion colours? Hearts On Fire (LP 2019) is Moonrunner83's third album. It tries to capture those feelings. The feeling of living in an isolated moonlit city on the edge world – a million people being lonely together. The feeling of hope. The feeling of ethereal love. The feeling of fading memories and distant dreams. The feeling of finding yourself. It is lush, spacious, and full of vibe. It has depth and analog warmth. It is the sound of our lost and unsung generation. And it was made for you...and every dreaming, starry-eyed soul out there.

Will you take this journey with us?


Summer days were golden.
Weeks were full of nothing but fantasy,
Chocolate cake and video games.
Our future promised possibilities.

Can we just go back to a bygone year,
those carefree times?
Forget what we know, forget hardship,
When life was kind.

Drawing unknown worlds, pure creations,
Straight from our minds.
Even if you break, I won’t let it take us down,
you and I.

Now we’ve split apart,
Nothing seems to be completely fair.
Hope you know no one meant you harm,
Just remember me and all of us who care.
