lyrics

I thought I saw you standing there,
Hanging up the decorations
In your little corner store
You got your pipe dream
Your three kids, Remy, Emile, and June
You got your husband Dave or what'shisname,
See you've moved on from me,
We were not tortured souls, we thought it was funny,
The pain from each other

I will fill the holes you left, I will be whole

It's been awile
Since I've picked up the pen and paper
Haven't written you in a while
I want you to know, I still think of our summers I miss it
How are the kids? College now?
I don't remember I'm getting old
I can only picture you young, amber hair, waves of joy,
The little bear we lost,
I was there, through it all, I got you,
You had the world

I will fill the holes you left, I will be whole

How could you not have told me? Remy's married, Emile has kids
I question time,
Is it wise? Or does it make mistakes?
It must have,
For you've been gone for far too long
I hope you feel alright
P.S. do you remember our beach? I went again,
I don't like it without you

I will fill the holes you left, I will be whole

Who am I kidding my dear
You never answer, I don't expect you to,
They told me I held on, but I miss you, to kiss you would be
My days of days,
I visit you, even on,
Always on the rainy days
Anyways, I won't miss you for long, I love you, I'll see you soon,
But until then my rose
Goodbye.
