I grew up here~ home and other demons ~


why did you leave me
and where did you go
and how can I ever find you

there is a rock under the church with your name
but it isn’t you
it never answers back
and it doesn’t sing me to sleep
and it won’t come even though I’ve tried
it sits there and watches me cry

why did you leave me
you’d say you’d always be there for me
and where did you go
where is this heaven you’d speak of
there was no address
left in your will

I’ve got nothing left in this house
but phone calls and postcards
I sent long ago
Reminders of carefree days
and childhood ways


I grew up here
I told someone last night
And grandma taught me all I know
I left childhood here
I told someone last night
As I wiped my tears and not let them show


And how will I ever find you
Now that I’ve got so much to tell you
Who is going to tell me that I’ve made them proud?
