about

Written by Owen Ashworth

lyrics

Alicia

she married young

The year she was widowed
she had a son

On Christmas

or when you’d pass through
You’d bring Danzig records
for your nephew

In hard times

kids grow up fast

Please be there for him
your sister would ask

He’s trouble

just like you were

With girls & with teachers
Without a father

Like you

when you were a child

A young nephew out in the wild

At sixteen

he dropped out of school
Took off with some jewelry
his dad’s coat & tools

He called you

from the bus depot

With his girlfriend pregnant
& nowhere to go

You told him

that he should go home

& said you were sorry

& hung up the phone
Then no one

heard from him at all
When Alicia came crying
you didn’t mention his call

Like you

when you were a child

Your nephew’s out in the wild
