Music & Lyrics: "We Are All That We Are" by Angels & Airwaves (Love, Pt. 2, 2011)



Angels & Airwaves



~~*~~



The ice is really cold, the street lights really old
Her child's all alone, as she melts into her own
And slowly fades away, into a river full of shame
But at least numb to the pain--can you see it?

Can you feel the shallow wave, from a needle to the grave?
From her hell too far away, you're my only ...
You're so sad my valentine, on your journey to the light
But first straight to the fire--

And we are
All that we are
Holding on until we fall apart
And we are
All that we are
Holding on until we fall apart
And we are
All that we are
Holding on until we fall apart
And we are
All that we are
Holding on until we fall apart
And we are ...

... all that we are ... all that we are
... all that we are ... all that we are
... all that we are ... all that we are
... all that we are ... all that we are ...

In my opinion, this is the greatest
Angels & Airwaves song.
It's on Melody's Musicscape,
a song for Melody herself, and one
specific to Book Three, which is still being written.
It is epic to the point of bringing me to tears
every time I hear it,
the finishing guitar solo in particular.
It reminds me to live my finite life as fully
and bravely as possible,
to soar as high as I am able,
and to fear not for the morrow.
