Forever After Days (The National)

On my feet I stand tonight Stand and step up to the light An extraordinary man Unbroken in a breaking light Forever after days Stand and make myself a crown To the table I step alone Hold my own above the ground Take my shot under the light Heroes come the common way Pull myself into the sky Wrap me in the banner I made On my feet I stand tonight Stand alone inside the air An extraordinary man Everything stops and holds me there Forever after days Stand and make myself a crown To the table I step alone And hold my own above the ground Take my shot under the light Heroes come the common way Pull myself into the sky Wrap me in the banner I made Forever after days Stand and make myself a crown To the table I step alone And hold my own above the ground Take my shot under the light Heroes come the common way Pull myself into the sky Wrap me in the banner I made
