lyrics

Is it losing her if you watched her go,
If you know where she is buried?
Is she lost if you know the way by rote?
If you know right where she's gone to,
how come she's so hard to get to?

So you keep sleeping from sorrow
If you can sleep at all
Does it help to borrow
all the memories we hold?
Learning to smile again,
Things you never knew were learned
It's never for the better anyway

I should start thinking more about how we live
But whenever I think about life
How it's metered out and ruled by exception
Strange for everyone and fleeting
I can't help thinking how it ends

How you keep sleeping from sorrow
If you can sleep at all
Does it help to borrow
all the memories we hold?
Learning to smile again,
Things you never knew were learned
It's never for the better anyway
