There’s an empty lot where my house once stood.
I ran.. like I always knew I would.

Ran til my body was all worn down…
Bruised and broken
In a hospital gown

There’s an empty lot where my house once stood.
You still loved me… like I always knew you would

It took the breaking of my spirit
And everything I knew
It took thousands of miles,
A razor and…
Oh.. the things we do

And.. I know..
We carry the sins of our fathers
And… I know..
We carry the burdens of our mothers
The weight of all hurt on our shoulders

But the heavier the heart,
The stronger the will
A song of love
Will make our weary bodies still

Just some words that pushed themselves out last night.. fell asleep while writing it so just posting now…
