lyrics

You are dear to me, Alexander
Tell me friend, how well do you remember
The glass jar to hold the frog and salamander
To keep them breathing through the frost of mid-November?
You said the air holes in the lid must look like stars to them
But maybe our stars are just holes that let heaven's light in

Have no fear with me
You are ever dear to me
I hope you can hear me
Alexander

It is clear to me, Alexander
The way that shame can make us all pretenders
After your family heard the scandal
They packed and headed back to the panhandle
Your thinning hair and body scream surrender
But you hold onto a hope you can't remember

But have no fear with me
You are ever dear to me
We can change by grace and mercy
Alexander

We're all wounded animals, Alexander
Who without warmth won't make it through the winter
Let's not huddle and hide in homes of rotting timber
But rise upon their brightly burning embers
Your broken brother's love grows ever tender
Love lives and breathes forgiveness, Alexander

So have no fear with me
You are ever dear to me
We survive by mercy only
Alexander
