Countdown to New Shoes Album Day 1, Track 15

Standard

(Post edited – each day, a new song was previewed. The preview link was the same every day. I have removed those links as they are now dead. As the band releases videos, I’ll adjust links for specific songs. Your best bet right now is to head on over to ShoesWire.com and buy Ignition. You won’t be disappointed. The guys put a great deal of time and thought into this album and the songs are stellar.)

Shoes, that amazing Power Pop band from Zion, Illinois, has been working on a new album for over a year. It’s titled Ignition and will have an “Extreme Fan” release on July 3rd. Every day, starting today, June 18, they will reveal a new song, counting down from Track 15.

Track 15 is “Only We Remain”, a song by Gary Klebe. I’ve had it on loop for over an hour and love it. He’s always had the raspiest voice in the band and it suits this song so well.

Buy Ignition from ShoesWire.com.

ONLY WE REMAIN
(Gary Klebe)

Too long, we played the game of chance
Of trivial romance
Left all to happenstance

Do what we wanna do
We’ll do it anyway
Do what we wanna do
Livin’ for today

Only we remain
And now only we remain

No time for empty alibis
Another cut and run
Another one and done

Be what we wanna be
As though we’ll never fall
Be what we wanna be
With no regrets at all

Only we remain
And now only we remain

All erased, not a trace
Flying blind, but flying high

Love will come and go
With a mind of its own
Anytime or any season
With no rhyme or reason

Let go of everything we know
Just like there is no end
We are what we pretend

Do what we wanna do
We’ll do it anyway
Do what we wanna do
Livin’ for today

Only we remain
And now only we remain
Only we remain
And now only we remain
