lyrics

Coats and clothes and all you owned
Discovered like unsettling treasure troves
The remnants of you, here to stay for good

Your book is dog eared on the bed
I skim the final words you must have read
I think about how for you, it's like time just stopped

When i see you now
It's only in still shots
How will I learn to let you go? I may never know. I may never know.

Your writing marks a day in June
Who could've known that you'd be gone too soon
The calendar flips on with or without you

And at the bottom of your drawer
Memorial cards of those who've gone before
Fifty years younger, but now you've joined them

When i see you now
It's only in still shots
How will I learn to let you go? I may never know. I may never know

Four years since that day in mid May
The shock no longer feels quite the same

Stopped being consumed by missing you
Is it reason for joy, or for more pain?

I can't explain....

When I see you now
It's only in still shots
But from time to time, in my mind's eye
I see your smile, and it's clear for just a while

When I see you now
It's only in still shots
But from time to time, in my mind's eye
(you're clear for just a while)
