Lyrics

A cradle's dressed in blankets. Small toys, new tiles. A phone to hear her sleeping. Small toys, a red pacifier.

The room awaits a breath of new life. The wallpaper's pink with horses in white. The pages are buried deep in the ground. We long to find them.

She climbs into her Volkswagen. Nine months, four miles. Rushes to the hospital. Nine months, Lord knows she's tired.

She thought she'd hold her baby that night, but the heartbeat had stopped when morning saw light.

She climbs into her Volkswagen. Nine, months, four miles.

The pages are buried deep in the ground. We long to find them. The mystery's scary and our questions are sound. We long to find them.

My Mom called with the news. Oh my God! We'd lost our beloved. The child, born into death, scarred and bereft. A mother left empty. I fell to the floor. I cried for their pain. The heart of our family bleeds today. Oh my God! Oh my God!

The pages are buried deep in the ground. We long to find them. The mystery's scary and our questions are sound. We long to find them here.
