Medicine Boy

Story Behind The Song

It occured to me that as people in NY were taping pictures of lost loved ones to walls, those same lost loved ones were probably standing right next to them unable to comfort them, thus the line " dust covered people tape pictures of ghosts to the wall"

Song Description

Walls come crashing down sometimes. Outside of us and inside of us. Take your medicine means, deal with it if you made it happen, unless of course there is no way to solve it and then it may be better to run.

Song Length 3:27 Genre Folk - Contemporary
Lead Vocal Male Vocal Language English

Lyrics

words can be spoken and laws can be broken
kingdoms can fall, world's come crashing down around you
but time can't be stolen from you

we live our lives with love and devotion
conquer our fears, with the notion that we are young
we stand together as one
so take your medicine boy but sometimes
it's better to run

kingdoms can fall and astonish us all
when dust covered people tape pictures of ghosts to the wall
so stand in the shambles of iron and stone
to the light of a candle that seems to be calling you home

chorus

you're all I've known, all I've ever hoped to be
no matter how I try, there will nvevr be you again
so take your medicine boy but sometimes
it's better to run
it's better to run
because you took my breath
and you took my soul too deep
