​This Song

This song is by Ron Sexsmith and appears on the album Blue Boy (2001).

I brought a song into this world
Just a melody with words
It trembles here before my eyes
How can this song survive?

I brought it to the tower of gold
In my coat of many holes
I came unarmed, they've all got knives
How can this song survive?

Now I can't help wondering how it is
How someone like you exists
When all around you bullets fly
You don't seem to notice them go by
How can this song survive?

I'll never leave this song alone
I'm going to keep it safe and warm
For hate is strong and darkness thrives
How can this song survive?

Now I see the game that I'm up against
No wonder I feel so afraid
For every song you ever heard
How many more have died at birth?
How, how can this song survive?

I came unarmed they've all got knives
How can this song survive?
Until we finally say goodbye
How how can this song survive?
I wonder how, I wonder why
