I slowly started chipping away at this block of stone
In an attempt to regain your attention
Why won't you hear me out?
I started out with some paper and pen and my apologies
But every time I try to write to you
I just can never find the words to explain

So I'll build a monument to honor you
Out of the ruins of the love I knew
I'll turn your favorite memories into
A sight for all to see
Cause I know when you see it,
You'll come back to me

Picked up the phone and I started to dial your line from memory
Too proud to ever let you pick up
Close to the point where I should give up
You'll never call me back
So now I'm doing something tangible
I'm working with my hands
Because I can never seem to manage to say I'm sorry in a language you can comprehend

So I'll build a monument to honor you
Out of the ruins of the love I knew
I'll turn your favorite memories into
A sight for all to see
Cause I know when you see it,
You'll come back to me

I'll put it right outside your window
So it's impossible to ignore
Will that be good enough for you?
And even if you pull your shades down
And burn the statue to the ground
It'll be enough to bring your warmth back to me

So I'll build a monument to honor you
Out of the ruins of the love I knew
I'll turn your favorite memories into
A sight for all to see
Cause I know when you see it,
You'll come back to me
Come back to me.
