Music Lyrics

 

“Departure”

 

Thanksgiving Day, he was drunk and high

Called his mom and said he won’t be home that night

Standing on the tracks, he didn’t hear the train

Tears in her eyes, all she feels is pain

 

That moment each year, his mom’s looking back

His last departure, his future black

No second chances, no second glances

Never had the time for life’s romances

 

That glass don't care if you live or die

That glass won't hear when your mother cries

 

Wash your hands, let go of the past

Wake up before today’s your last

Come back home, don’t stray from your path

Keep your feet off suffering’s tracks

 

You can change you future

You can't change your past

No matter where you go

Make every minute last

You’re here today, gone tomorrow

Let go of all the sorrow

 

That glass don't care if you live or die

That glass won't hear when your mother cries

 

Wash your hands, let go of the past

Wake up before today’s your last

Come back home, don’t stray from your path

Keep your feet off suffering’s tracks

This group consists of Janay Berry, Jose Colon, Mark DeGuzman, Swetha Jinka and Briana Wilcher.  They dedicated their original song, “Departure,” to the mother of a son who, while under the influence, passed away in a train accident on Thanksgiving night.  They hope their song will echo the words of the pain and suffering of a child’s mother and influence others to avoid making the same mistake.  “Listen to the echo of your heart.”
