lyrics

I do not have a sister
Nor do I a brother
I’m left with too much soul to give to another

Emily, she wept
On the velveteen steps
From a film we saw in midtown about a boat

So I took her hand in mine
And helped her on my shoulders
She screamed
You can’t move boulders
But you sure as hell move me

Leave the rest for me
She said farewell
I said no one says that anymore
I’ll go home and that’s alright

Emily, she knows
To wave on country roads
To drivers coming toward her
Just like she learned to do

Now the bones in my hand
Are heavy with the knowledge
Of what they’ve written of her
And what’s been written to them

Leave the rest for me
She said farewell
I said no one says that anymore
I’ll go home and that’s alright

I do not have a sister
Nor do I a brother
I’m left with too much soul to give to another

And you do not have a sister
Nor do you a brother
Perhaps we steal the pieces from each other
That were meant for them

Leave the rest for me
I said farewell
But no one says that anymore
I’m going home
And that’s alright
