"Intermission" is an unreleased song that was recorded by Big Time Rush. Written by Adam Cherrington, Nicholas "RAS" Furlong, and Travis Garland, and produced by Aaron Pearce, the song was registered in various performance rights organizations around the same time as other songs from Big Time Rush's first studio album, BTR.[1] A demo sung by Travis Garland had also been leaked online as early as 2010.[2]

An unmastered demo track recorded by all four members of the band was unofficially released online in 2011, shortly before the release of their second album, Elevate. The song prominently features Logan Henderson's lead vocals.

Lyrics[]

Curtains open the scene
Spotlights shine on you and me
Tonight
Pretending for the crowd below
We put on a real good show
But it's a lie
We can't help but cause a fight
It's the same old drama every night
I walk off-stage 'cause this whole play
Is more than I can take

Chorus:
Oh, I don't want it to be over
But we need a break before you break my heart
Oh, we can't live this scene forever
Right now, you and me are better, better off apart
But I'll still love you when the lights come up
For our intermission

I was one foot out the door
I couldn't play that part no more with you
The chemistry just wasn't there
I couldn't act like I didn't care
When I do, I do
We can't help but cause a fight
It's the same old drama every night
I walk off-stage 'cause this whole play
Is more than I can take, no

Chorus

We're like actors in a play
Living out our love on stage
You're just saying the same old lines to me, yeah
Somewhere, we fell off track
But I know love will lead us back

Chorus

Baby, I'm gonna love you when the lights come up
I'm still gonna love you when the lights come up
Baby, I'm gonna love you when the lights come up
For our intermission
