about

Silver was the first song written for beauty school. The song is a fictional story about a young couple who move away from each other with the best intentions of making a long distance relationship work but struggle under the reality and eventually fall apart.

The story is a metaphor for Dan and Joe when Dan left their last band Calls Landing and their struggle to write songs alone that were as good as the ones they wrote together.

lyrics

We were alive when we were young
We were the salt of the fucking earth
No one could tell us right from wrong
You were a fountain and I couldn't drink enough.

Back when you told me your parents were moving
I knew we were living on borrowed time
But I swear we can make this work if you say that we’ll try

The distance is but a number of hours spent
From days, to weeks, to months when I can barely find the rent
But i’ll be your armour, and i’ll splint your spine
I’ll be your guiding light, if you’ll only be mine

(if you’ll only be mine)

I sang about the weather, about its dependability
And I hoped that one day soon i’d use the tricks that you taught me
But I can't, oh I can't, it’s sad, but true
I’ll still be ever dependent on you.

I just wanted to call and put this to rest
I just wish I could see you and get it all off my chest
I think I wanted it more, and I think you wanted it less
Yeah I just wanted it more, and you just wanted it less
I want to be something bigger, someone better
Than the sum of all my parts
I want to feel like I matter, when it matters
I want to know I played my part
I think I wanted it more and I think you wanted it less
Yeah I just wanted it more, and you just wanted it less.

I sang about the weather, about its dependability
And I hoped that one day soon i’d use the tricks that you taught me
But I can't, oh I can't, it’s sad, but true
I’ll still be ever dependent on you.

Like the day we met outside your school
The rain it came down it was too cold for you
We said we'd make an effort to patch up the distance
But some weeks that's hard to do.

Ever dependent on you.
