​They Don't Know About Me And You

This song is by Chuck Prophet and appears on the album Night Surfer (2014).

There used to he a subway
Right above your head
My father played for the passers-by
On his violin
He burned that box for firewood
And he laid his burden down
Now I don't have a father anymore

You can take your Norman Rockwells
And your teenage billionaires
With their panic rooms and time machines
And vintage rocking chairs
When the moon is rising up
Behind the pyramid
We could he in Heaven or in Hell

You could be my savior
I could he yours too
They say the race is over
But they don't know about me and you
They don't know about me and you

So take this note to Memphis
There's a woman l once knew
She's buried in the catacombs
You can lay it on her tomb
She taught me how to take a punch
And I've taken more than my share
Now I don't have a mother anymore

Oh, but you could be my savior
And I could be yours too
They say the race is over
But they don't know about me and you
They don't know about me and you
Well, come on, you can be my savior
Oh baby, come on, you can be my savior

He burned that box for firewood
He laid his burden down
Now l don't have a father anymore
