It’s been five years, to the day
Since it’s been this way
I still remember the leafs
And how they swayed
The burning red in the trees
And the heart of a new family
One god damn strong comradery

I see an old man cry
Who wants his son back
With a woman who once had four
But she lost one fast
And the three remaining brothers
Spoke to us in kind regard
Trying to sustain the tattered remnants
Of our hearts
I still see three broken shells
Who want their brothers lack
To be filled and to be thrived
For him to come running right back

Now I see children
Who’ve gone their separate ways
Keeping in touch but out of Birmingham
Where they used to stay
Back in those comforted nights
When we’d hold each other together
Dry every tear
Make sure we’re all better

And I have my brother
He can’t cry behind closed doors
He tried and he tried but they never fell
But he wishes that they would
Next time I see him
I’m gonna hold him tightly
Heal wounds on his chest and in his heart
The best that I could

And I watch my mother
Weap on her wedding anniversary
She’s looking for him
Who seems to be missing
And we don’t know where he went
But he never made a scene
And now it just plagues our hearts with hopeless wondering

I’m sure that every one of us
Has had a moment alone
Where we are speaking out loud
To a ghost
And we ask him how it is
And we tell him how are we
Until a chilling realization
That he’s not in our company
