Nahko and Medicine for the People is a music collective fronted by Nahko Bear. They have a new record this year, called "Hoka". We met the guys some time ago - this is "Love Letters To God".

Lyrics


[Chorus]

Love letters to God
Wonder if she reads them, or if they get lost
In the stars, the stars, in the stars
So many parts to a heavy heart
If there’s no beginning, then where would you start?
Start, start, where would you start?

[Verse 1]

And dig, always dig a little deeper
Sometimes it’s hard to be my brother’s keeper
Universal test, feel the weight of my love put your hand on my chest
And rest
In the cradle of my arms
And to pick up that gun
My love we are destined to teach these ones to be brave
And never run away
In silence, never been so loud in the violence
When we’re fighting for a change, not afraid to lose it all despite all the rage
We are animals
And we cannot be caged
Provoke us to fight
So we burn a little sage and write poetry
Wiser than the enemy will ever be
The minority
And authority

[Chorus]

Love letters to God
Wonder if she reads them or if they get lost
In the stars, the stars, in the stars
So many parts to a heavy heart
If there’s no beginning, then where would you start?
Start, start, where would you start?

[Verse 2]

To the heavens
Flipping through my chapter seven
I live with the snakes in the great deception
And we’re asking
Is this the way we should go?
We walk the earth, baby yeah we got this
Focus, and it’s redirected
Grateful, and I’m resurrected
Stubborn, But I know the way
Take my hand
I won’t lead you astray
We will not go gently into the darkest of days
Grandma’s here, and she says persevere
Take a walk in her mocks sees a trail of tears
And our fears, are the same as they ever were beers[?]
Numb the pain of our holocaust years
Always mobbing and motion
Maybe, baby be an island over an ocean

[Chorus]

Love letters to God
Wonder if she reads them or if they get lost
In the stars, the stars, in the stars
So many parts to a heavy heart
If there’s no beginning, then where would you start?

Start, start, where would you start?
