about

For a dear friend who passed less than a week ago. Hopefully in time I will be able to write a happier song to remember her by. Right now, all I can seem to write is sadness.

lyrics

There's a horrible magic to that sad stretch of time
When the ones that love you don't know
Happy borrowed hours that they take for granted
Thinking you're off somewhere
Living and breathing and doing just fine

Over and over look over my shoulder
I thought that I saw you, but then I remember
In spite of the springtime my world has gone colder
I knew who you were but not who you would have become

Words of consolation just make us feel angrier
Now is not the time for us to be okay
We just keep thinking back to the things that you said
To the way that you were
We just keep wishing we could press rewind

Over and over look over my shoulder
I thought that I saw you, but then I remember
In spite of the springtime my world has gone colder
I knew who you were but not who you would have become

We don't want to make you a saint or an angel
We just want to make you be here
We want to remember the things we disagreed on
That made you who you were,
Not just a glossed-over picture in our minds

Over and over look over my shoulder
I thought that I saw you, but then I remember
In spite of the springtime my world has gone colder
I knew who you were but not who you would have become
