lyrics

You're a drive-by shooting in a quiet place.
You're a loved pet in a shallow grave.
There were children playing in busy streets,
but you insisted on following me.

I am my sister drying out on the lawn.
I am the palms of my father burned raw.
I am the stones that all my grandfathers gave,
but you are my mother's voice calling my name.

I bury boxsprings in the back of the yard.
I sleep in tunnels when the floors are too hard.
I left my favorite jacket on your bedroom floor,
and you couldn't help but to tear through the drawers.

You dream in day-glo from the rear of the car.
You climb trees just to stare at the stars.
You stood in silence as it started to rain,
but I still remember the taste of your name.

Have I told you how it sounded when my father used to say,

"Don't be afraid."

"Don't be afraid."

"Don't be afraid."

"Don't be afraid."

"Don't be afraid."

"Don't be afraid."

"Don't be afraid."
