After all of the storms
Are come and gone
I can’t really be sure
This is my pillar to stand on

I’ve watched it crumble and fall
Right at your feet, and
There aren’t enough turns in the world
To force these paths to meet

Chorus:

I can’t breathe
So open a window
It’s freezing
So close it again
You say: It hurts when I do this
I say: So why do that
This silence is killing me
But it isn’t as hard as the fall

So what do I do?
I guess I just wait
‘cause trying to force time
Is just tempting fate

I am reasonably sure
There’s no easy solution
And I have never been good
At conflict resolution

Chorus:

And I can’t breathe
So open a window
It’s freezing
So close it again
You say: It hurts when I do this
I say: So why do that
This silence is killing me
But it isn’t as hard as the fall

There’s a stillness here now
A curious sort of quiet
And my only strength left
Is the comfort in leading the riot

And I can’t make you believe
In God I haven’t respected
Not until my own certainty
In the fates has resurrected

Chorus:

And I can’t breathe
So open a window
It’s freezing
So close it again
You say: It hurts when I do this
So why in the Hell would you do that
This silence is killing me
But it isn’t as hard as the fall

My pillar to stand on
And I don’t know, I don’t know…
This is my pillar to stand on…

This is my pillar to stand on

All Your Favorite Bands

Composed by Taylor Goldsmith & Jonathan Fritz
As performed by Allison Crowe and Band feat. Sarah Melanie White

Late night drives and hot French fries
And friends around the country
From Charlottesville to good old Santa Fe
When I think of you, you still got on
That hat that says “let's party”
I hope that thing is never thrown away

I hope that life without a chaperone
Is what you thought it'd be
I hope your brother's El Camino runs forever
I hope the world sees the same person
That you've always been to me
And may all your favorite bands stay together

Now I'm just waking up
And I'm not thinking clearly so don't quote me
With one eye open I'm writing you this song
Ain't it funny how some people pop into your head so easily
I haven't seen you in there for so long

I hope that life without a chaperone
Is what you thought it'd be
I hope your brother's El Camino runs forever
I hope the world sees the same person
That you’ve always been to me
And may all your favorite bands stay together

I hope that life without a chaperone
Is what you thought it'd be
I hope your brother's El Camino runs forever
I hope the world sees the same person
That you’ve always been to me
And may all your favorite bands stay together

And may all your favorite bands stay together
