lyrics

3 am and I’m stuck in a rut,
Head in the pages but,
I can’t remember - what do they say?

The blurring fades away,
Bell ringing in my ears,
They crowd in, haven’t seen them so scared in years.

And how do you look them in the face,
Tell him his mother’s gone, she’s been erased.
Not one word, but he breaks down anyway.

I’ve never seen him cry,
Shivers run along my skin tonight.
I’ve never seen him cry,
My mother holds him tight, I’ve never seen my father cry.

I promised her a song,
I took far too long,
And there is nothing I could sing to remove regret.

So I sit in a silent haze,
While others say goodbye.
They say sorry an I just nod and look away.

My uncle pulls me aside,
Tells me to keep watch on my father's eyes.
The realization of his words leaves me terrified.

I've never seen him cry.
Shivers run along my skin tonight.
I’ve never seen him cry,
My mother holds him tight, I’ve never seen my father cry.

Rip our hearts in two,
And wear it on our sleeves.
Tear the black ribbon on his lapel,
The kriah finally makes my eyes swell.

I've never seen him cry.
Shivers run along my skin tonight.
I’ve never seen him cry,
My mother holds him tight, while my father cries.
