Now you’re in the mirror.
Sketched over me
My curve of my smile
And the cut of my teeth
Gave me a mouth back.
With heat in my blood.
Courage to carry it
I hope you gave me enough.
I learned from my mother
Her heart is shattered but wide
After all that shes been through
She keeps yourself open
To peace in your life
She gave me her guts
And the red in my hair
The song spilling off my tongue
Leaving me everywhere
A framed family portrait
Kids crouched in front
They laugh loose and easy.
Faces open with love
That’s what we got now
That’s what’s keeping us young
Fighting off gravity
Before it takes everyone

    General Commentthese lyrics are wrong, it's supposed to be;
    "you gave me my mouth, dad and the heat in my blood"
    "she gave me her guts, dad"
    "the song spilling off my tounge, leading me everywhere"
    "and thats what we got, dad"


    just a few minor errors, had to correct 'em.

    General CommentThis song is awesome. It's cool to see him talk about his family and how proud he is about what they've given to him, and how strong they've made him. I'm obsessed with the new demos.
