Check out Teddy at Jea Street’s store!

When I was a young boy, I held you close.
I called you my sunshine because you kept me warm.
You dried my tears when momma wasn’t near.
You eased my soul.
Yeah, you eased my soul.

And then I grew older and had to let you go.
Uncle Charlie said to stand up and show you’re strong.
I’d cry no more. I’d push pain down.
Choke my tears
Choke my tears

And then my world grew colder as my innocence died.
Guns sparking like lightening in my neighborhood.
Brother against brother.
People killing one another.
Misguided souls.
Misguided souls.

By the time I reached 19, I was as hard as a stone.
I saw so much life lost that my heart grew numb.
I’d see your face.
On every corner.
Beneath that pole
Beneath that pole

See, in the city there’s no where to get peace of mind.
Everything in my life is turned around.
You used to mean peace
Now you only mean pain
My teddy bear
My teddy bear

I just wish could I run back to the days long ago.
When the world wasn’t frightening and I didn’t know.
That you’ll need more
Than a teddy bear
To find your peace
Find your peace
