lyrics

the water knows us both
your feet on the same ground
your hair felt the same wind

memories have faded like yours did
all photos have tarnished

i've heard all the stories
how you swam in the cold
and drifted in and out of love

i know of your demise
and recall the look in your eyes
when we spoke
but you were silent

when they asked how you were
could you hear and infer?
were my words just a blur?

did you remember our names?
could you recall your acclaim?
was your soul still the same?

foggy like nauset mornings,
my mind struggles to evoke
the last day we spoke

we visited your room
where the people pass and the
dead flowers bloom

we sat on the patio
and i spoke of michigan

little did i know
i wouldn't see you again

when they asked how you were
could you hear and infer?
were my words just a blur?

did you remember our names?
could you recall your acclaim?
was your soul still the same?

when i sang those words
a pastor to my left
my father in my eyes

i knew you were gone
but i could not cry
if i had been older
i would've realized
what we had
and what i lost
