lyrics

There’s blood on the ground.
Our father was ill.
You just laid there dead,
I was standing so still.
I wish it was me.

Could you paint me a picture
With deep reds and blues?
I’ll keep it in my pocket
To remind me of you.
To remind me things change.

Under the shade of the trees,
I take up my bed.
While the depths of the seas
Fill the edges of my head.
Oh, what have I done?

I tried to write you a letter,
But I couldn’t sign my name.
You know I’m not hiding,
I just can’t stand the shame.

Oh I wish it was me,
Laying dead on the ground
With my head in my hands.
Then I’d know that I’m not alone.
