"Parallel" is a song by Heffron Drive. It was written by Kendall Schmidt and Toby Gad, and released on March 25, 2014.

Background and composition[]

Schmidt wrote "Parallel" with German producer and songwriter Toby Gad, who he had previously worked with for Big Time Rush, in 2013. He originally titled the song "Stars Align" before deciding to change it.[1] While the song was ultimately used by Heffron Drive, it may have been considered for Schmidt's other projects, such as Big Time Rush. In an interview, he explained that "every song I write is potential for anything. When I was writing songs for Big Time Rush, even if I didn't think it was gonna get used for Big Time Rush, it would have ended up being used for... somebody."[2] In the database of the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP), the song is registered with Big Time Rush as the performer.[3]

Lyrics[]

Counting stars, lying in the grass
Side by side, your head on my shoulder
We talk a lot about nothing much
Every breath we're getting closer
Parallel in this universe
Do we light up our hearts just watch 'em burn?
Parallel, are we crossing lines
'Cause maybe tonight, the stars align

The stars align
What if the one who was meant for you
Was all along right in front of you
You just didn't see
It was there all the time
Got a feeling tonight, yeah
The stars align
The stars align

I pick the thoughts out of your mind
And fit the pieces into my puzzle
Everything I want to say about you
Is more than enough to write a novel
Parallel in this universe
Do we light up our hearts just watch 'em burn?
Parallel, are we crossing lines
'Cause maybe tonight, the stars align

The stars align
What if the one who was meant for you
Was all along right in front of you
You just didn't see
It was there all the time
Got a feeling tonight, yeah
The stars align

I'd throw a rope
Around the moon
And pull it close
Whatever it takes to be with you
Maybe tonight
Maybe tonight, the stars align

The stars align
What if the one who was meant for you
Was all along right in front of you
You just didn't see
It was there all the time
Got a feeling tonight, yeah
The stars align
The stars align
The stars align
