These walls have eyes 
Rows of photographs 
And faces like mine 
Who do we become 
Without knowing where 
We started from?

It's true; I'm missing you 
As I stand alone in your room 

Everyday that will pass you by 
Every name that you won't recall 
Everything that you made by hand 
Everything that you know by heart 

And I will try to connect 
All the pieces you left 
I will carry it on 
And let you forget 
And I'll remember the years 
When your mind was clear 
How the laughter and life 
Filled up this silent house 

One room 
Two single beds 
In the closet hangs 
Your favorite dress 
The books that you read 
Are in scattered piles 
Of paper shreds 

Everything that you made by hand 
Everything that you know by heart 

And I will try to connect 
All the pieces you left 
I will carry it on 
And let you forget 
And I'll remember the years 
When your mind was clear 
How the laughter and life 
Filled up this silent house 
Silent house 

In the garden off the living room 
A chill fills the air 
And the lilies bloom 

And I will try to connect 
All the pieces you left 
I will carry it on 
And let you forget 
And I'll remember the years 
When your mind was clear 
How the laughter and life 
Filled up this...

And I will try to connect 
All the pieces you left 
I will carry it on 
And let you forget 
And I'll remember the years 
When your mind was clear 
How the laughter and life 
Filled up this silent house
