lyrics

you, you have died
they have buried you outside
some they lay flowers down
others shake their heads as they pass by

as for me
i walk down to your grave
i trace my finger in your name
and all that they've engraved

they did not know you.

memories fade
and our hearts learn to behave
we know where to go
to fill in all the holes we have made

all of the things
that we wish we could have said
and all of the things
we wish we never did

i put you in a box
with all the things you made
all the things i could not throw away
i laid my head down on the lid
channeled everything you ever said

i will put you on the shelf
and go on by myself
in a world without you

i wasn't there
when they put you in the ground
i'd like to think
that you're still walkin' round

and when i see
you on the other side
will we still be the same
or will we have changed

i put you in a box
with everything you gave
all the things i could not throw away
i laid my head down on the lid
channeled every word you ever said

oh, i will put you on the shelf
and go on by myself
in a world where
i never met you
