"The Longer I Lay Here (Pedro the Lion cover)" as written by and Kevin Patrick Devine....
The longer that I'm out here the better you sound
You're scrunching up your face in this picture I found
And I'm chasing after you steadily losing ground
I don't wanna forget so I'm writing it down

Have you ever?
No never never
I found that hard to believe
Let's burn the furniture
To see how angry
The fire can make me

And you say that there's someone
That you need to reconnect with
Some scarecrow from highschool
That you loved and never slept with
A baby with a pipedream
Playing hopscotch on your bandages

And I'm singing all these songs
While I sleep on your couch
I'm coughing up a lung
But I'm covering my mouth

And I paint you on the wall
Yellow, red, green, and brown
I miss you all the time
But I'm blocking it out

Are you better?
No never never
What does that say about me?
Now let's break the smoke alarm
To see how scared
Locked windows can make me

You say there's a stranger
Staring sideways in a deep freeze
A loner draped in ivy
Playing slumlord in his city dream
A faker with an art form
Pulling magic tricks
On the weak girls up his sleeve

And I'm choking right along
With the words in my throat
I'm falling back in love
With the letter you wrote

And I think that I was wrong
But I guess I don't know
I figured that'll I wait
Until you tell me so

The longer that I'm out here
The better you sound
You're scrunching up your face
In this picture I found

And I'm chasing after you
Steadily losing ground
I miss you all the time
But I'm blocking it out

And the longer that I'm out here
The longer that I'm out here
The longer that I'm out here
The longer that I'm out here
The better you sound
