lyrics

THIS IS JUST TO SAY

Your baby brother’s not a baby anymore
Man, he’s growing like a weed
He’s asking questions I can’t answer
So I just tell him how we used to be

And your momma’s getting older
But she’s aging gracefully
She’s talking about another baby
She’s finding reasons to believe

And me, I’m writing you this letter
Between faith and misery
Man, I get lonesome here without you
Between what is and what ought to be

And me, I’m trying hard to get myself together
I been praying for peace
To some god I don’t believe in anyways
But desperate men do desperate things

And now the bottle’s almost empty
So I guess I’ll get to sleep
But right before I close my eyes I see you suddenly alive
I linger in-between to watch the way you used to be
