lyrics

Pour me your whiskey, don’t pour me your tears
I’d like to stay hazy another twenty-five years
Image of man, so ill to define
For it’s not what we take, it’s what we leave behind

Break all your bottles and break into homes
Tell them all lies lest they leave it alone
Purity's dead, well, that’s what they'd say
It's all honest mistakes, ones that we never made.

CHORUS:
So whoa oh
You left me out in the cold
So whoa oh
We’re built from ashes and coal (x3)

Keep me awake from that bottomless sleep
I don't really mind I was just counting sheep
Every single day that I lay in bed
From the weight of the blues that was crushing my head

Deal me a story, don’t care if it's true
I like myself liars as much as I like you
Don’t get me wrong, I guess you’re alright
A convenience of warmth for a cold bed at night

CHORUS:
So whoa oh
You cast me out on that shoal
So whoa oh
We’re built from ashes and coal (x3)

Pour me a whiskey, don’t pour me your tears
I’d like to stay hazy another twenty-five years
Image of man, so ill to define
For it’s not what we take, it’s what we leave behind

CHORUS:
So whoa oh
You picked me down to the bone
So whoa oh
We’re built from ashes and coal (x3)

about

Brother Valiant New Jersey

Formed in the Spring of 2013, Brother Valiant began as a couple of friends writing folk songs in a basement in Northern New Jersey, which soon grew into an eclectic 7-piece ensemble. Together, they create a wholly unique sound by stitching together folk, rock, punk and jazz influences into a peculiar patchwork of song. ... more
