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.

Lyrics:
You were the brother,
I didn’t know,
They dimmed your fire,
Erased your glow.

Too little justice,
And so much pain
Can’t 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’ll say your name.

I’ll tell my daughter
I’ll tell my sons
To fight for justice
To fight for love.

So you’ll live in us
And through our change
As we move forward,
We’ll say your name.

So we cry for you,
Like good brothers do.
And we know this has to change,
And so we’ll say your name.

And though we know there is so much to do,
To heal the hurt, to make things right.
We’ll stand by you and yours right through it all,
We’ll share your pain, we’ll join your fight.

So we cry for you,
Like good brothers do.
And we know this has to change,
And so we’ll say your name.
