She rested her head upon my chest
Sensed liberation in between breaths
Wonder if sex is what she found it in
Peace, found it laying down with men

Wasn't there to judge her, many ways I loved her
It was more than bodies we shared with each other
We lay under the cover of friends
A place where many lovers began

I began to feel her body shake in my hand
Body language, it's so hard trying to understand
Usually after sex it's a good feel
Took by silence, emotion stood still

I could feel her tears spill from her grille
Hurt from before that began to build
She told me hold me, a story she assembled it
Tellin' it, trying not to remember it

It was a story of innocence taken
Thought she could redeem through love makin'
When she was eight she was raped by her father
And tried to escape through multiple sex partners

Felt pitiful she had only learned
To love through the physical, inside it burned
My heart turned, I thought of what this man did
She forgave him, she grew to understand it

Her soul was tired and never really rested
Only with men through aggression
Said it was a blessing and it happened for a reason
By speaking it she found freedom
Between me and you

Sometimes I wish a careless whisper
Serenade her without speaking a word
Because of you I'm stronger, I'm afraid no longer
I feel so alive in me, you have liberated me

She laid, I watched her breathe
Happy to be here, not afraid to leave
I couldn't conceive her not being here
Death in her face, her not having fear

Less than a year she was diagnosed with it
Memories of that year so close and vivid
Happiness would only visit once in a while
To watch an adult becoming a child

Somehow I knew she'd make it
The life of one so given early would God take it?
Hurt she placed in, hope and prayer
Hurt she placed in chemo and lost hair

I stare with my eyes closed
Wonder when the body leave does the mind go?
Watchin' Jordan became less important
Seeing this disease eat away my aunt's organs

According to doctors there's no cure
We went through doubt and cases of insure
Wish I knew then how to heal with herbs
Knew a part of her I could heal with words

But the creator was sending for her
What seemed like the end was the beginning for her
Like that she didn't want us to remember her
No more medication did she want us to give to her

It spread from her liver to her lungs to her last breath
Only to be freed through death
Between me and you
Between me and you

Sometimes I wish a careless whisper
Serenade her without speaking a word
Because of you I'm stronger, I'm afraid no longer
I feel so alive in me, you have liberated me

He spoke with his eyes, tear-filled
A lump in his throat, his fear built
My whole life it was in steel
This ain't the way that men feel

A feeling he said he wish he could kill
A feeling not even time could heal
This is how real life's supposed to be?
For it to happen to someone close to me?

So far we'd come for him to tell me
As he did insecurity held me
I felt like he failed me
To the spirit, yelled help me

I'd known him for like what seemed forever
About going pro we dreamed together
Never knew it would turn out like this
For so long he tried to fight this

Now there was no way for him to ignore it
His parents found out and hated him for it
How could I judge him?
Had to accept him if I truly loved him

No longer he said had he hated himself
Through sexuality he liberated himself
Between me and you

Sometimes I wish a careless whisper
Serenade her without speaking a word
Because of you I'm stronger, I'm afraid no longer
I feel so alive in me, you have liberated me

Liberation
Peace
