My window pane was leaking glass
I cut my arm, and then you laughed
I jumped from just one story high
And now I'm stuck here till I die
Now I'm stuck here till I die
Now I'm stuck here till I die

Don't you remember me?
I swear I knew you when I knew you there
We loved and learned under the sun
We had more fun than anyone
She's eight years old and moving out
She's half way across the country now
She's smarter than the lot of us
She doesn't break, or bend, or fuss

Maybe she's in Heaven now
Or maybe she's back here somehow
She's wearing all the finest clothes
And kept in jewelry head to toe
It is impossible to know
There is no ending to the show
The grand finale, big hurrah
One day we're here, the next we're not

Oh, look what I've done here
Oh, look what I've done here
Let these thoughts creep in
Let them seep right in
Let these thoughts creep in
Let them seep right in

I hope she doesn't have to see
What became of her family
Her father left after she died
Her brothers cried, and cried, and...

She took your man, I took your name
The miracle that never came
But, oh, her life was beautiful
She'll live through me and live through you

I used to sing you lullabies
I'd hold you when you'd start to cry
I was your mother and your friend
Don't you remember me from then?
I was your mother and your friend
Don't you remember me from then?
