lyrics

There’s a picture of you I call up often. It’s you, it’s you in your wedding dress, arms akimbo. There’s a memory of us I replay often. It’s us, it’s us on the westbound bus, headed nowhere. There’s a promise that I had trouble keeping. It’s me, it’s me. You say, "we weren’t made for misery—you were made for me." Hannah, I know it wasn’t always easy. I know it wasn’t always good.

There’s a lesson that I had trouble learning. It’s you, it’s you when you’re sad and blue. "We need space," you said. There’s a station we sang, late in the evening. We sang, we sang along to most every song.
