I won't forget the day
I passed by your house
And that china cat in your window
That I'd grown accustomed to was gone

And I never did question
Your intention
When you burned down the neighboring home
With your wishing well

That day we walked the earth
And you took me to your grandmother's church
Where you sang me a song
I still play today

Wasn't it funny how all of your friends and family
Who called you irreplaceable couldnt remember your name
you carved your initials into a park bench and told me they all were the same
Then she took your hand and asked you to dance anyway
You laughed until midnight when you ran out of things you could say
Wasn't it funny how fast you forgot about everything that remained

But I wont hold it against you
I wont hold it against you just yet

And they all thought you died
When you were drafted and sent off to Vietnam
Then you came home with a white flag
Tied around your breaking heart
And I can't imagine it any other way
