about

Here's a song for those of you running from the abusers of your past. You're not going alone. We're with you.

lyrics

You’re Not Going Alone
Mallory Graham & Scott Tyler

You don’t need to call me by my name.
You don’t need to call me by my name.
You can call out to the Maple Trees, they’ll hear you just the same.
You don’t need to call me by my name.

You don’t need to eat what you’ve been served.
You don’t need to eat what you’ve been served.
You can run out to the cornfield, brambled berries for dessert.
You don’t need to eat what you’ve been served.

You can stand there stricken at your old front door,
Or shake the dust you swore you’d hold.
You may not belong here, anymore,
But you’re not going alone.
You’re not going alone.

You don’t need to set your clock by me.
You don’t need to set your clock by me.
You can set it to the worms below, the last to move your feet.
You don’t need to set your clock by me.

You know I wish I were an orphan, sometimes,
With the wide sky and the fierce lightning
And the hawk tail leading over white eyes--
I’m all feather, prey, and taillights.

You don’t need to run and hop that train.
You don’t need to run and hop that train.
You can keep on walking, you’re bound for glory just the same.
You don’t need to run---

Don’t just stand there stricken at your old front door--
Shake the dust you swore you’d hold.
You may not belong here, anymore--
You’re not going alone.
You’re not going alone.
You’re not going alone.
