about

"Ross came up with this idea after we’d finished what we thought was going to be our debut EP. We knew immediately that we had to get back into the studio and see this one through. It was around Christmas and we were all in Star Wars mode. I was feeling pretty great about a guy I was into and between that and the onscreen reunion of Princess Leia and Hans Solo, we came up with this song about the multi-dimensionality of love, how it can maybe even outlast ‘time’ as we know it, traveling at the speed of light."

From Little Reader's forthcoming debut, out May 19.

lyrics

SPEED OF LIGHT - Ross Flournoy, Kate Tucker

I used to worry there’d be no tomorrow
But that was yesterday

I used to worry there’d be no one to love me
But then I saw your face

I’ve got you
I just gotta get to know
All about you
Cause I don’t ever wanna let you go
I’m never ever gonna let you go

Another world could be so unnerving
Or it could be beautiful

And when we touch just like the planets turning
Stars align and then they fall

I’ve got you
I just gotta get to know
All about you
Cause I don’t ever wanna let you go
I’m never ever gonna let you go

When our bodies burn out
Hold me close
At the speed of light
You’re still the one
I love the most

I’ve got you
I just gotta get to know
All about you
Cause I don’t ever wanna let you go
I’m never ever gonna let you go

about

Little Reader Nashville, Tennessee

LITTLE READER is the accidental love child of Ross Flournoy and Kate Tucker, spun from one golden afternoon in the hills of Los Angeles where they met in a garden to write their first song. One thing led to another and soon after, Ross was on his way to Nashville, where Kate and her favorite studio mates welcomed him with open arms and lots of ¼ inch tape. THE BIG SCORE is out May 19. ... more
