This song is about a friend of mine whose mother passed away in 2012 from illness. To me, it serves as a warning against ignoring your grief - it always seems to come out one way or another.


Older and young laid low the sound
His arms folded to far, undone
Let all my words be one

Linger along on a trail I found so far
Sing, choirs of angel-song
Let all my words be gone

Shame on me
I held those eyes
For far too long, I know

Wet shoulder under his eyes, so red, so calm
Tell me, was I your son?
Let all your words be one

Long - but not so long - are these tears I've shed so far
Sing, choirs of angel-song
Let all my words be gone
