This melancholy song with lyrics of introspection and mortality and musically has a lush and exquisite arrangement built on a piano and topped with strings and acoustic with a brief but potent guitar lead.

Listen to “Statues”:

Song Lyrics

You and I were two old and tortured souls
Repaired by a love of broken things
In a life, just some bodies growing old
No fear of the end, of anything

We’re just ordinary people, you and me
Time will turn us into statues, eventually

We got by, though we never needed much
A sliver of hope, no diamond rings
We got high, it was heaven it was hell
Flying over them, with broken wings

We’re just ordinary people, you and me
Time will turn us into statues, eventually
Oh, just two ordinary people, you and me
Time will turn us into statues, eventually

Our bones forever in stone, monuments of life
To dust, as everything must, we fade away in time

We’re just ordinary people, you and me
Time will turn us into statues, eventually
Oh, just two ordinary people, you and me
Oh, time will turn us into statues, eventually
