about

In memory of David Finkleman

lyrics

I’m gonna try to not let you be defined by sorrow
I’m gonna fight to smile when I think your name
Chain smoke these cigarettes through tomorrow
When every gust of wind feels like a hurricane

And I wake to hoping I dreamed that phone call
And I wake to the knowledge you’re not there
The corner that we walked by one million times
Would come to be the place that our childhood died
There’s heavy hearts in the city tonight

You said we need to live with energetic action
You sang songs to work towards a better place
Where love could overcome politics and fashion
Now all I hear is static on the radio waves

I won’t waste a single second looking for a reason
I won’t wait for an answer that’s not there
I try to eat the pain that I feel inside
Drive down to the corner where David died
There’s heavy hearts in the city tonight

It’s like spinning into gold
Every lie that we’re ever told
How to turn something hideous into something to behold
But I looked into your mother and your father’s eyes
I can’t begin to think the pain they feel inside
There’s heavy hearts in the city tonight
And I wake to hoping I dreamed that phone call
And I wake to the knowledge you’re not there
I try to eat the pain that we feel inside, Drive down to the corner where David died
There’s heavy hearts in the city tonight
