Deep below the cold dark dirt
Lies the body
Of the boy they search for.
I bleed for his mother
And for her broken heart
Over his lonely bones.
All their pain and fear and hurt
Are lying down there with him
And when they finally bring him up
To see the sun again
Their hearts will not be healed
And he can’t stop their pain.
But there he’ll be and they will hope
That the aching mystery will fade
When Johnny finally goes home.
