Shawn took a handful of pills and jumped in the river

Sunday morning January 12

They found him cold near the birches

There is no comfort in this world


I remember the night I tried to find you

Who is brave and who’s crying in the dark

Everything I’ve ever known is you

Everything I’ve ever loved is you


Is there light wherever there is dark

Comfort when the pain is hard

Strength when you’re at your weakest

Morning when the night is charred


There’s a fountain singing you a song

I can't tell the lightness from the black

I’m drawn to the water just like you

I’d take your place in on the rack


If you hear this say a little prayer for me

This cell is not the streets you've run

My back is failing with this cross

Scarred and waiting for the sun
