lyrics

I didn't want to write you
But not for the reasons that you think
I think I've had too much to drink again
But it's better than what's inside my head

I'm staring out the window
Composing letters to you in my mind
It's getting cold, your baby's doing fine
We talk about you all the time

Shut your mouth
Who are you to judge?
Could be your father or your brother
Your child or your mother
We'll wait it out
While this must be enough
I'm sending letters to the penitentiary
To the butterfly in 503

I know he doesn't write you
But not for the reasons that you think
Some burdens must be borne in silence
His silence loves testament

You always were the wild one
The brightest star, the stormiest of seas
Loving you ain't always easy
I wish you could see what we all see

So shut your mouth
Who are you to judge?
Could be your father or your brother
Your child or your mother
We'll wait it out
While this must be enough
I'm sending letters to the penitentiary
To the butterfly in 503

"The words cutting deep. The feeling behind them, piercing. But the elegance and beauty of her voice singing them in a way that eases the pain of the story to come...like cool water for your parched soul."
- Red Line Roots
