lyrics

The stones made over time and over stretched out recollection
Rested their hand in mine, their warmth gave me piece at night
They have taken a piece of me, and crumbled into the sea.

And stoney faded faces captured in old photographs
Torn pieces half washed away but branded in my memory
I can see them smiling back at me, my soul is sitting silent with them now.

Cool breeze and dappled light, filtered sunlight
Your name in another life lets me sleep at night.

‘cause you’re still the piece that keeps driving me home
The love deep hidden in my soul
And your smile, your smile, it sets you apart
You’ll always be a piece of me

My memory’s still strong of you, I know exactly what you would say
How you’d dress and where you’d go, I know it all so well and yet
The edges have been softening, blurring and blending into one.

And though we are but formed of dust, and back to dust one day we must go
I am not afraid of it, I know that I could never lose you
We gather up the pieces of the people and the things that are worth remembering.

Cool breeze and dappled light, filtered sunlight
Your name in another life lets me sleep at night.

‘cause you’re still the piece that keeps driving me home
The love deep hidden in my soul
And your smile, your smile, it sets you apart
You’ll always be a piece of me
