Sacrifice

When I hear your name
I go soaring right back to that place
Red-lipped, basement bedroom
Incense and your perfume
Was the final time I saw your face

Monday at school
“Oh my god
Did you hear who just died?”
I covered up my ears
And I couldn’t bear to hear them laugh
About a shot that rang out through the night
Hold on
Hold on and on and on

There’s a place where you and I looked in each other eyes
And swore that we’d be free someday
So please tell me why you sacrificed all that you would be
We hadn’t much to wait

A photograph
Is the only piece of you I have
I that hula skirt you smiled,
Yet none of us knew
How much pain there was behind your smile
Hold on
Hold on and on and on

There’s a place where you and I looked in each others eyes
And promised we’d be free someday
So please tell me why you sacrificed all that you would be
You threw away your dreams

Only heaven knows why
You sacrificcd all that you would be
You threw away our dreams
So much life to live
So much love to give
So much life to live
So much love to give
