Story Behind the Song

My brother passed away some years ago...but in his short life he had grasped how to truly live, and love.

Lyrics

Old man did you know the coins your friend gave you were all he had?
His bus fare home
So he wandered dark streets you knew so well till the world woke up to him
Woke up to him
And he loved, and he loved you
And he loved, and he loved you

Old girl did you know when you spoke to your friend of your dignity gone
When he open this home
For you to tea and shower, to sit and gather,
He wrote you a song
After you'd gone

He learned on his tower, he'll flourish in this tower
He'll pepper, he'll shepherd what he knows
To stretch this far, to speak, to mar
This perfect space with human skin

Sweet girl surely you knew when you laughed,
When you cried
When side by side
You lay on the bed in the dark to listen to the rain
You filled his heart
You filled his heart

And he loved, and he loved you
And he loved, and he loved you
