Shared on June 9, 2020
We wrote a song about George Floyd. But it ended up being about George Floyd and so much more. We cry for you, and we know this has to change.聽

Lyrics:
You were the brother,
I didn鈥檛 know,
They dimmed your fire,
Erased your glow.
Too little justice,
And so much pain
Can鈥檛 bring you back now,
But I can say your name.
Oh we cry for you,
Like good brothers do.
And we know this has to change,
So we鈥檒l say your name.
I鈥檒l tell my daughter
I鈥檒l tell my sons
To fight for justice
To fight for love.
So you鈥檒l live in us
And through our change
As we move forward,
We鈥檒l say your name.
So we cry for you,
Like good brothers do.
And we know this has to change,
And so we鈥檒l say your name.
And though we know there is so much to do,
To heal the hurt, to make things right.
We鈥檒l stand by you and yours right through it all,
We鈥檒l share your pain, we鈥檒l join your fight.
So we cry for you,
Like good brothers do.
And we know this has to change,
And so we鈥檒l say your name.
