I remember sometimes
When you never came home
How I crawled inside
Those sad and lovely bones
That you left behind
Rarely held nor seen
Everybody always
Everybody always leaves

It was a third world town
In the great dead north
I felt a wedding bell shiver
Folded hands divorced
From a prayer for the permanent
Warmer tears on my sleeve
Everybody always
Everybody always leaves

Sometimes I can't remember nothing
Sometimes it shadows everything
Some sundays it's as loud as thunder
In the morning when the telephone rings
Clearer days in some distant forecast
Dark days in this present past
In the blur of some phantom widescreen
I'll let go of what I never had

She took a mouthful of rain
With a gutter full of pills
She wrote I handled the pain
But it's the hope that kills
So take care of yourself
And don't worry about me
Cause everybody always
Everybody always leaves

Sometimes I can't remember nothing
Sometimes it shadows everything
Some sundays it's as loud as thunder
In the morning when the telephone rings
Clearer days in some distant forecast
Dark days in this present past
In the blur of some phantom widescreen... I'll let go of
What I never had
Don't leave... Don't leave... I'll never understand... Don't
Leave
