What Mattered Most
by Ty Herndon



I thought I knew the girl so well
If she was sad I couldn't tell
I missed the point
I missed the signs
So if she's gone the fault is mine
I know I know a whole lot little things
And even though I could list them one by one
She would still be gone

Her eyes are blue
Her hair is long
In ‘64 she was born
In Baton Rouge
Her favorite song is “In My Life”
I memorized her every move
I knew her books, her car, her clothes
But I paid no attention to what mattered most

I never asked she never said
And when she cried I turned my head
She dreamed her dreams behind closed doors
That made them easy to ignore
I know I know I missed the forest for the trees
All I have to show
Oh when she walked out the door
The cold facts and nothing more

Her eyes are blue
Her hair is long
In ‘64 she was born
In Baton Rouge
Her favorite song is “In My Life”
I memorized her every move
I knew her books, her car, her clothes
But I paid no attention to what mattered most

Her eyes are blue
Her hair is long
In '64 she was born
In Baton Rouge
Her fathers tall
Her mothers gone
She moved out west when she was two
The way she laughed
The way she loved
Oh my god what did I do?
