lyrics

When you left town I knew there’d be
Some price we’d have to pay.
Somewhere inside there’d be a scar,
I’d find it there some day.

You went away and left bits of yourself
Scattered through these rooms,
I’ve swept the place so many times
I’ve worn out all these brooms.

And so we go leaving bits of ourselves
All around the place,
In amongst the autumn leaves
Or in a dusty old suitcase.

Some we bury carefully
Underneath the floor,
Or simply toss into the back
Of an old kitchen drawer.

On every street in this old town
You’ll find a little piece of me.
There’s bits of me next to every dam
And under almost every tree.

There’s bits of me in our old house
And in the garden that we grew,
And in the dust behind the fridge I found
A little piece of me and you.

Perhaps one day there’ll come a time
When it all bleeds into one:
All of our storms
And the whole of the sun.

And then the pieces of ourselves
That we’ve left out in the rain
Would all flow together,
And obliterate the pain.
