Mat Kerekes – Ruby Lyrics

You wouldn't know
But I think of you often
It's like a line I can't finish
Like I'm wishing for nothing
It's been a long time
Still can't come up with something
It's like I'm stuck in a head rush
I've got some time I can't manage
And I won't even try

Did you feel the sunset beaming on your way in?
Did you get your lover back and laugh about it in the end?
Did you feel the wonder?
Did you let go of you hurt?
Did you hear your daughters cry for you?
Love is when they think of you

You wouldn't know
But your presence is quiet
If I stay still, I can feel it
Like it's speaking in silence
It's been a long night
Now I'm imprisoned to morning
I could do anything, it just seems too uncertain
So I won't even try

I stared up at the moon for a little while and wondered if maybe you were looking too
Well maybe you were looking too

I thought about that night when you told me about your big plans and all of the things you were gonna do
And I knew I believed in you

All of my years keep slipping away, slipping away
One in the same
All of my years keep slipping away
Wrestling me, they got too much to take

It's been this way before, pulling out the thorns
They say that there's a reason for it but I don't know no more
I saw strangers passing by
I took their heartache all as mine
And I felt the rain coming down hard
I heard your voice, too young to say goodbye

Too young to say goodbye
Too young to say goodbye
Too young to say goodbye

I stood on your front porch, talking to your brother
I don't see him much anymore
Things have changed since you've been gone
Maybe we learned the hard way or maybe it was a mistake
It doesn't matter either way
It was what I wanted anyway

All of my years keep slipping away, slipping away
One in the same
All of my years keep slipping away
So I will tell you when I'm done, tell you when I'm done
So I will tell you when I'm done
