lyrics

I woke up today trying to figure out
Which part of my brain I keep calling my broken heart
Because my heart does its job
It’s my mind that don’t know the part

I remember when I last saw you
I left as you entered; we did not speak
You just smiled and hugged me
And went on to live your last week

I’m wasting your time
I know you don’t mind
If we talk for awhile
You know that it helps me get back on my feet

I woke up today and I put on a suit
That you would’ve loved and I carried your casket
Into the sunlight; I cried for your mother
I just couldn’t mask it

Some people say when your photo is taken
So is your soul but how can that be?
I don’t have your soul but I’ve got your smile
In the picture I keep

-----------------------

Do you mind if I turn off the radio?
Because the song that’s playing
The sound that it’s making
Yeah that trumpet is breaking my heart!

I knew him well and I think about him all the time
And I know that you don’t mind
If we sit here and just talk about him
A little while longer…
