lyrics

I'm staring at a box.
So is my mother. My sisters too.
A wooden box painted light blue.
I'm sweating in my suit. So many people in the room.
The microphone won't work.
just crashes all the words
coming from my cousin.
He's at the podium.
Not like he wasn't already stuttering.
Because his eyes were watering.
Watering because the thought
that I know that we both got.

And all the light that you gave me
has tanned my soul completely
It all came from your heart,
but now it's just so dark.
I'll grow paler than chalk.
I'm staring at box containing something that I loved.

My dad's giving me a nod.
Guess that means that it is my time
to come up
I'm handed my guitar.
everyone's trying to look through me as if I will get them far.
And I sing Amazing Grace.
how sweet the sound.
That saved a wretch like me.
The crowd's expressions darker
than the clothes they wear.
as I play each trembling note.

And all the light that you gave me
has tanned my soul completely
It all came from your heart,
but now it's just so dark.
I'll grow paler than chalk.
I'm staring at box containing something that I loved.

And all the light that you gave me
has tanned my soul completely
It all came from your heart,
but now it's just so dark.
I'll grow paler than chalk.
I'm staring at box containing something that I loved.
