My mother had a brother
Someone to cling to, she said

I thought I knew them all, I thought I knew
I said, "Show me his face again, tell me again why he died"
She said he couldn't wait for the things that I've seen

Over-sensitive and kind
It seems he took his own life
Tears in the dirt, and all over your newborn treasure
I guess he had to wait until my momma had me
In endless sky
But mama will you tell him from your boy
I guess the world was getting warmer
Mother will you tell him about my joy
The sun came out, yeah, and I'm just breathing it in
My mother had a brother
Seems the empty spaces tortured him

I just don't know what I was thinking of

The times they changed
While we got stronger
I live each day with him
And I'm still breathing it in
And I swear now that freedom is here
I'm bad to the bone, I'm just a little torn

We've got to make damn sure that it was worth it
I'm making so much love
I was a prisoner, but he saved me
I was a prisoner, so disgrace me
And I don't believe they care.
