I’d run and yield to
The faint song inside of you
Listen for it coming through
I was just a kid
Long lost but along with it
Trembling, I couldn’t sit tight
With no witness I’d run
Warmed by the summer sun
Asking, asking
For the real story
For the long story
I’d be exhausted
From the times you lost it
I wish you’d close the hole in your head
You’d start to begin
They’d cut you off within
They made sure you held it in
They didn’t want you babbling
They didn’t want you babbling
You’re not around anymore
But somehow I can hear you
Better, better than before

I looked up x3
To you then
I looked up x3
To you then

The days go nowhere
As I imagine being there
Being where you were
It’s too early to tell
But still, I promise I will
I look forward to passing your word

I looked up x3
To you then
I looked up x3
To you

I knew you from long ago
You taught me all I know
You taught me to let you go
