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 8 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 isn’t possible 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 cried
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?
