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

It's true: I'm missing you
And I stand alone inside your room

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

I will try to connect all the pieces you've left
I will carry it on and let you forget
I'll remember the years when your mind was still clear
All the flickering lights that filled up this silent house

One room, two beds
In the closet hangs your favorite dress
Good books that you read
Are in pieces now; the pages are shredded

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


Everything that you made by hand
And everything that you learned by heart
Every name that you can't recall


Written by: NEIL FINN
