Sky Pilot

I knew a boy once

when we were in the war
oh he was brave but he had nothin’ on you

It was too much for him
He didn’t ask to be saved
You didn’t ask for this but this is what I gave you

This is all I gave you.

My first-born green-eyed son
You’ve always been the one
to square your jaw and do what I insist

If I say raise your gun
I know the shot will come
I know the scars that cross your body are the marks of deference

And on the highway in the dark I ask for her forgiveness

And in the night I hope she’ll come to me, she’ll comfort me
She’ll take my face between her hands
She’ll take the sound of bombs and turn them into drums
Oh when she comes I hope she understands
Oh when she comes, I hope she understands

Is there a difference
Between my boy and him
And all the boys in all the fights without an end?

Our stars are made of salt
Our moon is etched in flame
The sky is huge above the silver of the land
God, I hope someday I’ll understand.

And in the night I hope she’ll come to me, she’ll comfort me
She’ll take my face between her hands
She’ll take the sound of bombs and turn them into drums
Oh when she comes I hope she understands

Oh when she comes, I hope she understands
