That’s What We Used to Do

by Karen L. Jackson, Rex Horan, and Sara Lee


Kelei, you were a teacher,
I loved to learn from you,
You loved to learn from me.
That’s what we used to do.

Kelei, you had your own clock,
Were you always running late,
Or did I arrive too soon?
That’s what we used to do.

The window’s opening,
I’m not sitting in the dark,
And we are not apart.
As the light falls in
The clock says 4:13
A message sent to me

Kelei, you were respectful,
I learned how to treat you,
You knew how to treat me.
That’s what we used to do.

Kelei, you were a bright star,
Everybody loved you,
You loved them back.
That’s what we used to do.

The window’s opening,
I’m not sitting in the dark,
And we are not apart.
As the light falls in
The clock says 4:13
A message sent to me
