about

Southern California’s version of “Born to Run”, in the guise of a “feel good” pop song. “Anything good takes time and patience...anything that's true is worth the waiting.”

lyrics

"Late Bloomers"

Another endless summer
Living on the streets of Shakeytown
We're among the undiscovered,
Not the underground.

In the shadow of the 101,
Looking for that Sunset smile.
Don't you ever get that sinking feeling time ain't on our side?

Ain't never seen an overnight sensation
Coming from a grab-bag situation
I love you from the bottom of my heart.
Baby, can't you feel my heart, it's racing.
We are the phantom generation
Still taking chances...reaching for the stars.
Ooh...late bloomers that we are.

Meet me down in Playa del Rey
We'll sit and watch the jet-set fly away,
Maybe someday ain't so far away as yesterday.

It's like we're sitting in the cheap seats,
And we're bleeding Dodger Blue.
You can't win 'em all, but we are bound to win a few.

Anything good takes time and patience,
Anything that's true is worth the waiting,
So, come here, baby, fall into my arms.

Baby, can't you feel my heart, it's racing,
We are the phantom generation,
Still taking chances...reaching for the stars.
Ooh...late bloomers that we are.

"It's actually the people of America who wrote these songs," said Kevin Higgins, the duo's main songwriter. "They told us their stories and we listened."
