Lyrics

AMELIA
(for Amelia Earhart)

Mama's favorite dress of mine
had birds all over
I wore it every Sunday
'til I got older
and I reached away for something there
that I could taste in the air

Put it all in a little black box
Hide it on the floor of the sea
Only leave behind you
The waves and speed

I was gone for 30 days
and 20 hours
before I saw the water close
and tried to call the towers
I opened up my window then
and gave my letters to the wind

Put it all in a little black box
Hide it on the floor of the sea
Only leave behind you
The waves and speed

I wasn't quite sure where I was going
I knew that I'd know when I was there
and I wouldn't let anybody
keep it away from me again
