about

Written by Tom Maloney about Brandy's Gramma Flossie as she struggled with her last years in a nursing home. She was a strong woman who was used to caring for everyone else, and who loved to sing.

lyrics

From dust I came
and back to dust I one day will return
there is no one to hold me now.
My eyes are bright
but my voice is fading fast from your ears
my struggles here are almost through

And I wait for night
and I wait for my wake-less night
and I wait for you to call for me
and I wait in here
in this hollow shell
and I wait for you to sing to me

I have no fears
the alter comes on casters for me now
I will return and sing for you
My grip will ease
but something in me holds on today
my parting takes more than a day.
(call me home)
