There has been so much silence since you have been gone.
So many times I have thought over that moment, when you sent me packing…
And while I still can’t find my own words to describe how I feel, a few songs can.
Boy it’s been all this time,
and I can’t get you off my mind,
and nobody knows it but me.
I stare at your photograph
still sleep in the shorts you left
and nobody knows it but me
So many nights I’ve prayed for you to say
“I should have been chasin you, I should have been tryin to prove
that you were all the mattered to me. I should have said all the things
that I kept inside of me, and maybe I could have made you believe
that what we had, was all we’d ever need.”
No this ain’t how this was supposed to be.
What about the promise that you made to stay with me till your dyin day
said you’d never go away
are they just things that people say?
So If you see me out on the town
and it looks like I’m burnin it down
you won’t ask
and I won’t say
But in my heart
Somewhere with you.
