lyrics

Natali it’s not your fault,
You didn’t buy that rock,
You didn’t prop it up
On a bed made of plywood and foam.

As it came crashing
Like a comedy piano in free fall,
The tragedy of it all
Is that you didn’t even blink.

Oh the heavenly glories
That I never saw
Because my eyes filled up
With the blood and the gore
And you carried on
Like you were somehow dumb,
As the whole world rested
At the tip of your tongue.

As if we needed more of a sign
To draw the end of a line,
You broke my heart
As well as my head,
No more fumbling
I’m jumbling my words instead.

You seemed to forget all too soon
As I lost faces and places and names,
Things remained more or less the same
Because it didn’t happen to you.

Silence became your best friend
Over breakfast tea,
I lost another part of me
The morning you left.

Remember in the back of the ambulance,
Trying to hide the smell of me
From your face and your hands,
Laughing loudly all the way
at life’s cruel joke,
You could have been the villain
In Murder She Wrote.
I wouldn’t change what we did,
I’d only treasure it more,
I’d give you all my love
With a Darwin Award
And if I could go back
I wouldn’t carry that rock
Down the side of a mountain
Because it weighed a lot.

As if we needed more of a sign
To draw the end of a line,
You cracked open my heart
As well as my head,
No more fumbling
I’m jumbling my words instead.
