"21" as written by Reginald Perry and Paloma Ayana Stoecker....
Twenty-one
I stumbled 'fore they came to get you,
You locked yourself away.

Steady on
The guilty trials they'll send to test you,
I swear I cried that day.

But I'll wait for you to wake
And I'll find the words to say and
I'll smile and take a picture on the day,
You turn twenty-one.

So blow out the candles
Make a wish and celebrate,
I know I miss you more with each day you're gone away.

Twenty-one
The day they cut your spirit from you

Scarred my heart with pain,
Freedom on to inside a cage they kept you
And watched you die that way.

But I'll wait for you to wake and
I'll find the words to say and
I'll smile and take a picture on the day,
You turn twenty-one.

So blow out the candles
Make a wish and celebrate
I know I miss you more with each day you're gone away.
So blow out the candles
Make a wish and celebrate
I know I miss you more with each day you're gone away.

Gone away
Gone away
Gone away
Gone away

So blow out the candles
Make a wish and celebrate
I know I miss you more with each day you're gone away.
So blow out the candles
Make a wish and celebrate
I know I miss you more with each day you're gone away.

Gone away
Gone away
Gone away
Gone away
