Swing Low

from by New Native



I lean back, stay put and watch tongue-tied As you move right past me out of sight and
I can be better and I could live up to
everything that my father would have expected me to do
I lie awake, don't move, stay beside me I lied before, I won't ever fight it
But I can be better and I swear I could listen
just as close as my mother and put aside all ambition
I board the plane
Wait, I forgot how to turn it off and make it stop
But then, I can write better and I can sing softly Because it's all in my family and it's all that I'm used to
If you swing low, I'll duck down
I'll do whatever it takes to melt down
