lyrics

You said “Is someone gonna come to my school?
Will I have to hide underneath my desk?”
You shouldn’t have this kind of weight
To get off your tiny chest

I don’t have all the answers
Even though you’ve come to think I do
And if I am being honest
I just don’t want to lie to you

TV screen is screaming
In colored pictures telling a story in black and white
You say “Why would they do that to him?
He isn’t even putting up a fight.”

I don’t have all the answers
Even though you’ve come to think I do
And if I am being honest
I just don’t want to lie to you

Do I hide you from the headlines
Do I hide you from our past
Do I show you often enough
That you have every right to ask

You’re all tucked in, and I’m reaching for the light
You say “I don’t want to sleep by myself
What if you can’t hear me and I need you to save me?”
I look at you and wonder who will save us from ourselves

I don’t have all the answers
Even though you’ve come to think I do
And if I am being honest
I just don’t want to lie to you
