Erin McKeown (pronounced "mick-YONE") is an American multi-instrumentalist and folk-rock singer/songwriter. more »

You were never broken by ordinary things
You kept holding out for the big mistake
I was fragile, too scared and delicate
You kept trying, I'm the one that quit
Worn out by the baggage that we bring
You were right about everything

There were times your age began to show
You were never more dangerous to know
You passed me running, you caught me standing still
You'd do it all again for the thrill
I was raised you get out before you sink
You were brave about everything

Nostalgia sweet, hindsight so dear
Objects now are smaller than they appeared
The birds of summer, in winter disappear
In spring return new life, new years
Here I am, humble on my knees
Come back to life, come back to everything
