lyrics

A Church in Hell's Kitchen
I am painting stations of the cross
Thinking always thinking
No relief from thinking
Defending my position at a loss

Don't assume and share your fabrications
In the corner of my heart is desperation
For you to hear my song
Someday we'll all be gone
All be gone...

In a small town upstate you grow up
And do your best to raise a family of your own
Hollering always fighting
No relief from fighting
I am so scared and young

Your sweet smile and laughter have been covered
By anger and frustration my precious mother
Please tell me what is wrong
Someday we'll all be gone
All be gone...

In a house centuries old
I am wearing the dress you wore
Saying, "I do," and moving on
Creating always making a warm fire
To feed our passions to feel the feeling that we belong

Please let your sweet smile and laughter
Be uncovered from here and ever after
My heart goes out to you to be strong
Someday we'll all be gone
All be gone...
