Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
Everything is quiet since you're not around
And I live in the numbness now

(In the background)
I do the things we did before
I walk Haight Street to the store
And they say where's that crazy girl
You don't get drunk on red wine and fight no more

I don't see you anymore since the hospital

[Hook]
The plans I make still have you in them
Cause you come swimming into view
And I'm hanging on your words
Like I always used to do

The words they use so lightly
I only feel for you

I only know because I carry you around
In the background
I'm in the background


[Verse 2]
Words they come and memories all repeat
I lift your head while they change the hospital sheets

And I would never lie to you no
I would never lie to you no
I felt you long after we were through, we were through

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
Cause I felt you long after we were through
Well you come swimming into view
And I'm hanging on your words
Like I always used to do
The words they use so lightly
I only feel to you
I only know because
I'm way I'm way in the background
I'm in the background
