I remember a faraway laugh, a sweet caress
You'd help me zip up my dress
I remember your arms around my neck
21 shells wrapped in my nest

Endlessness, didn't last
I won't change, given the chance

And I remember no place for me to hide
Before you came home at night
I remember you turning out the lights
All I ever saw was the red in your eyes

No big surprise, happened nearly every night
Your own flesh and blood, I did wonder why

I remember not knowing what to say
And how calm you had remained
Your child stillborn with no name
I remember the never ending summer rain

Oh, please don't let what was
Get in the way of what's next
Don't forget, that what's to come hasn't come yet
