Song Description

A high school boy was killed about a block from his home on military road in Wash.DC. The song is mostly about his mother's love and how she handles her tragic loss. Simple, powerful emotions are evoked throughout.

Story Behind the Song

Driving down Nevada ave. in Wash DC three years ago, I noticed a woman carrying some flowers towards the corner of Nevada and Military rd. The act itself and the look on her face combined for a incredible moment of clarity...about her emotions.

Lyrics

Military Road


She walks down Military road
With a fist full of flowers she can barely hold
She wants to make the corner look fine
And show the town what she left behind

People say, ?now ain?t that sweet?
Pretty flowers on this beat-up street
But they don?t know what it all means
Every petal and stem is more than it seems

Military road, one flower at a time
One day we?ll all be fine, maybe when we get old
Military road, it gets me every time I see the sun shine
On the flowers on Military road

Three doors down in the upstairs hall
There?s a room that hasn?t changed at all
It?s been two years now going on ten
She?s turned the handle but never walked in

Military road, one flower at a time
One day we?ll all be fine, maybe when we get old
Military road, every day?s the same
Since her little boy became
Just some flowers on Military road

Military road, one flower at a time
One day we?ll all be fine, maybe when we get old
Military road, every day?s the same
Since her little boy became
Just some flowers on Military road
