Remembering

REMEMBERING


Written in February of 2009

Feel the wind sweep away
Endless words, endless days
I’m still looking for an answer
I’ve felt that fear within my chest
Held your head against my breast
Somehow I still lost you
Now I’m staring at a screen
Reminding me that you had turned nineteen
I forgot to call
As if I hadn’t spent all day… remembering

CHORUS:¬†And I don’t know where the past has gone
Or how the future came
It crept in quietly
Now the spiral’s growing tighter
And the leaves are changing hue
And the springtime shows up anyway
There’s nothing I can do
‘Cause I don’t know, where the time goes
I don’t know

And the world keeps spinnin’ round
Older faces, newer frowns
There’s just too much to fight for
I had seen them in their day
Eye’s lit up they were on their way
To anywhere
Now I’m looking through the glass
At these people, at this past
And I want to be there
But I’m already in this chair, here
On the other side

CHORUS
INSTRUMENTAL

Feel the wind sweep away
Endless words, endless days
I’m still looking for an answer
I’ve felt that fear within my chest
Held your head against my breast
Somehow I still lost you
Now I’m staring at a screen
Reminding me that you had turned nineteen
I forgot to call
As if I hadn’t spent all day… remembering
