"The Night Will Always Win" as written by and Guy Edward John/potter Garvey....
I throw this to the wind
But what if I was right?
Well, did you trust your noble dreams
And gentle expectations to the mercy of the night?
The night will always win
The night has darkness on it's side
I throw this to the wind

I miss your stupid face
I miss your bad advice
I tried to clothe your bones with scratches,
Super 8s, exaggerated stories and old tunes
But never by the moon
But not the state I'm in
The night will always win

I throw this to the wind
But what if I was right?
Well, did you trust your noble dreams
And gentle expectations to the mercy of the night?
The night will always win
The night has darkness on it's side
I throw this to the wind

I miss your stupid face
I miss your bad advice
I tried to clothe your bones with scratches,
Super 8s, exaggerated stories and old tunes
But never by the moon
But never the state I'm in
The night will always win

    General CommentAnother song dealing with the death of friend of the band Bryan Glancy.

    As Garvey says; "It's giving myself advice. Don't ponder these things that can potentially hurt you late at night. It's literally, Don't drink and think. It's another song about Bryan. It's a song about the friend I lost. Because he's still dead."
