David would've been about seven today
Goin to school in the second grade
Askin me questions ... too old for lullabies
David would've been about seven today ...



I'm standing in the aftermath of blind revision
I'm standing and I'm listening to the anthem of the ages
A small voice crying from inside another world
Will I be tomorrow

I challenged all the answers on the road to my conviction
I'm turning my attention to the silence of the ageless
A small hand reaching from inside another world
Will it be tomorrow

Maybe there's a place where children go
Maybe there's a place where children play when they've been swept away
In a river run deep with denial

We'll shout it from the housetop in the name of righteous freedom
But whisper through the fences when the truth is hard to follow
A small soul forming inside another world
Will never see tomorrow

Maybe there's a place where children go
Maybe there's a place where children play when they've been swept away
In a river run deep with denial



David would've been about seven today
Goin to school in the second grade
Askin me questions ... too old for lullabies
David would've been about seven today
But eight years ago when the world was better
I erased your name with the Scarlet Letter
