"Like Silver" as written by and Rocky Votolato....
You're in the kitchen, I stare at our bed frame
I'm hearing your voice through the door
I will work my fingers to bones
To find us a way out of here

I buried my past down in Texas
Where I'm from, to live here with you tonight
I know the morning light
Will come like it always does
To tear us apart
But I don't want to think about that right now
I just want to sit here and remember that little beach town
How the screendoor reflected the water
And your eyes in the picture we took
It left me with scars that are there for good

When we hit the bigtime
My darlin' I mean something
Like nothing the worlds ever seen
They'll put us on the Silver Screen
A Silver Lining - with clouds that forgot how to rain
The day we finally escape
Is all I'm thinking about right now
I just want to sit here and remember that little beach town
How the screendoor reflected the water
And your eyes in the picture we took
It left me with scars that are there for good
It burned holes in me that were permanent

    General Commenti seriously cannot believe no one has commented on this song. the sound is so haunting, and the lyrics are so nostaglic and beautiful.

    i think this song was written by rocky in the present from the perspective of himself in this period of time (this past relationship). i think this relationship was between two young(er) people, so it's been one of those first true love kid kind of relationships that has really molded him into the person he believes he is. i feel like those kind of people have touched you so deeply that you can't ever truly get over them, and i think this song is a tribute to that experience (although personalized, of course).

    anyway, i think that the relationship is going through a bit of a hard time, and the writer wants to find them "a way of out here"--out of the problems, into a space where the relationship can really flourish like before. the whole beach house memory is that better time from before that he wants to recreate. he realizes once the morning light comes, or reality, they'll be back to fighting, but he just, for the moment, wants to reminisce over the better times because he is still so in love with her.

    i think that last stanza is really just a culmination of all his dreams and wishes for his relationship and this escape from all their problems/all the annoying stuff that reality comes wiht. But obviously, the relationship ended and scarred him as all great relationships do. it just seems as if she will have a bit of a permanent hold over a piece of his heart because of those holes she burned into his heart. i'm not sure. it's a beautiful song, though.
