lyrics

She said, “I think I’ll go to Brooklyn” with a ticket in her hand
But the world drove her to Cleveland by way of Bethlehem
And she sobbed in hotel rooms and on buses and on couches on the way
A sense of obligation, a weighty family name,
A drive to share the moments after everything had changed
But even as a chorus it feels empty to say,
“I love you from where I still am”

She said, “I think I’ll go to Boston,” but the world had other plans
It drove her back to Bethlehem, bus tickets all be damned
And the love and the need and the fear and the grief gripped her heart
A fierce and tested loyalty, that same great family name,
A black hole where a stellar light has always been the same
In a world where we’ve never lived without you, we say,
“I love you from where I still am”

From a world where beautiful, young people die
And grown people can’t find a safe place to cry
A world without a man who shook my hand and loved me into who I am
Me and thousands more
Who are proud and aching and sore,
And say, “I love you from where I still am”

The album benefits worthy causes, and a full and clear voice speaking graceful truths throughout certainly doesn't hurt. ... more
