3. We Could Be Steel (Carley Baer, Morgan Rae, Robin Bienemann) Robin Bienemann - guitar, vocals / Carley Baer - ukulele, vocals / Morgan Rae - harmonica, vocals

Lyrics

Iron / by itself is soft
I am like iron in that respect.
Something magical, metallurgical
Happens when iron and carbon connect.

Carbon / is the queen of the elements
That everything living has at its core.
We’re so entirely different, like iron and carbon,
But the sum of our parts becomes something more.

I could just be iron, or
We could combine
Together we’d be stronger by
A thousand times.

I enjoy you from the riverbank
But together we’d deliver
An alloy with tensile strength
To span across the river.

Steel.
We could be steel.
I have a feeling that we’ll
Be steel.

Six and twenty-six,
We’re not so far apart.
We could bridge the gap
On the periodic chart.

We’re sentimental elements.
We know we belong together.
What could go wrong? Whatever!
We are strong as

Steel.
We could be steel.
I have a feeling that we’ll
Be steel.
