"To A Hammer" as written by and Erin Mckeown....
I will never leave you, and you will never know it
and i've never known it so plain
i will be the one to pretend it was nothing
to a blind man each day looks the same
(to a blind man each day looks the same)

was it love? was it travel? was it true? was it tragic?
we fucked all but in name
and when you say it's over, i will say it's over
but a banker counts more than the change
(but a banker counts more than the change)

my name in salt, your name in marble
one trace is gone and one stays
i will never leave you, and you will never know it
to a player everything is a game
(to a player everything is a game)

my name in salt, your name in marble
the echo will be the refrain
i will hold the secret, and you will never see it
'cause the handsomest flower still fades
(oh the handsomest flower still fades)

and as each day goes by we'll have better goodbyes
that's the beauty of time and of scale
but when i close my eyes, i will still see your light
'cause a train only follows its rail
('cause a train only follows its rail)

we will be the ones to pass on forever
forever will doom us to fail
i will never leave you and you will never know it
to a hammer everything is a nail
(to a hammer everything is a nail)
