Track Name: Staying Power
no one writes a classic anymore
we're all one liners and sound bytes
a force to take the daily headlines by storm
if only for a moment, then gone

but you've got staying power
you're the man of every hour
and hours turn to seconds, turn to dust
you're the only only one

you rolled a page for lungs to understand
the underhanded way that turned
a thousand faces to the heavens so fast
looking for your attention at last
if only for a moment, then gone

but you've got staying power
you're the man of every hour
and hours turn to seconds, turn to dust
you're the only only one
Track Name: We Laid Down
baby you were tellin stories that lit up the sky
about when you broke the TV screen for the people inside
i was feeling lonely, and you were so high
i just kept breathing you in to feel alive

and then we laid down
the most beautiful sound
you were the light that burned
i was a hero turned ordinary

baby i was feeling empty, so i made up my mind
that you were the only thing alive that was worth the time
then we found the bottle and we drank through the night
hoping the warmth would make our freezing feel alright

and then we laid down
the most beautiful sound
we swallowed our doubt
.....
you were the light that burned
i was a hero turned
you were so extraordinary
i was just helpless, singing
.....
