lyrics

I was having a helluva day
found Pepper in the driveway
she'd been hit by a car and left for dead
we picked her up wrapped her in a towel
drove her to the vet with the windows down
she started purring and it made us smile
till we found out cats purr when they die

Oh Pepper, you're the salt in my wounds
whatever happens next well you will find out soon
Oh Pepper, you're the salt in my wounds
wherever you go next well I will go there too

I still remember that time at your parents house
we gathered around the dinner table and stood up for a prayer
when a moth landed right next to my plate
I was about to smash him
when your dad said "kill? no kill!"
he scooped him up and let him out the back door
and changed my life forever
I guess sometimes roadkill is the saddest sight to see
especially when you care so much for every living thing

(chorus)

I will go there too
I wanna go there soon
