lyrics

Will you let me bore you with details squeezed out of memories
Rain on the wooden stairs, crusty pear tree
Haunted basement microwaves
Big meals around big tables
Arms passing aunts reminding
Chopsticks shoveling
Home for lunch, walk to the park, robbery, piano lesson
Things shrink as we get old
Haircuts on the balcony

Weekend trips to the old house
We learn about you in the process of bedroom archaeology

And all the things you said, all the things you did, all the things you thought
All the things you read, all the things you hid, all the things you brought
All the things you took, all the things you cooked, all the things you loved

Learning about you
Bedroom Archaeology

Letters about money
Letters about what the kids were doing
Letters I couldn’t even read
They were written in Chinese
Sixty year old letters
Illegible to me
And to realize all this
Things I might have never known

And how much of myself will be lost to my children’s grandchildren
Will they even know my name

And all the things I said, all the things I did, all the things I thought
All the things I read, all the things I hid, all the things I brought
All the things I took, all the things I cooked, all the things I loved

And the kids say we don’t know what we don’t know
We don’t know who we don’t know
