"Singing with The King" as written by and Matthew/reed Poulos....
Don't take another day away from me
'Cause I don't got many as it stands
Here on the rooftop screaming like the world stopped
Another cigarette for both of us, hold my hand
I'll take us both to the top of the world if I can

Cause mama it's okay, tonight I'm going to sing with Elvis
And we will sing a couple songs just for your ears so sing along and hey
If I go down in the quicksand don't grab my hand
Just play me as loud as you can
'Cause tonight I'm singing with

And daddy's sitting in the corner with Cash when Mr. Moon picks up the beat
I hear the sound of someone warming the truck while they wait for me
And Freddie says that I can stay, that I don't have to be afraid this time
The angels filling up the place and Carly's walking she's the first in line

It's okay, tonight I'm going to sing with Elvis
And we will sing a couple songs just for your ears so sing along and hey
If I go down in the quicksand don't grab my hand
Just play me as loud as you can
'Cause tonight I'm singing with

Remember the days we thought we were golden and that all these nights were ours
Remember my face, remember the rooftops
Do you remember the stage, when all of it's broken not to show your favorite scars
A smile on your face, we'll count only our stars

It's okay, tonight I'm going to sing with Elvis
And we will sing a couple songs just for your ears so sing along and hey
If I go down in the quicksand don't grab my hand
Just play me as loud as you can
'Cause tonight I'm singing with

    General Comment"ere's something really cool that I found out about the song when I first heard it.

    In the lyrics I heard "The angels filling up the place and Carly's walking she's the first in line". So I asked Steve, who's Carly? I knew the others Moon, Cash, Freddie were musicians but didn't know who she was.

    Steve told me she's Carly Driscoll and she was a friend and fan of the band.

    I thought, wait why is she among the angels filling up the place? So of course I googled her and found out that she had suffered from cancer and ended up passing away September 9, 2010.

    For me it added a lot to the song. Putting an actual person to that name made it much more emotional. I actually got the chills the first time I heard the song again after I found all this new information out.

    Maybe it'll do the same for you now that you know who Carly is too."
