Brave Old World
I wipe the ashes from the soles of my shoes

I step off the sidewalk, thinking of you

I light the candles in my makeshift shrine

The wind brushes in and dries the tears from my eyes



Everything left when I lost you

Everything keeps keeping on

Its a brave old world

Even though youre gone

Even though youre gone



How I wonder

Do you wonder where you are?

To keep your thoughts

I think your thoughts

Youre not here



Everything left when I lost you

Everything keeps keeping on

Its a brave old world

Even though youre gone

Even though youre gone



I wonder

Do you wonder?



I breathe my warm breath on the windowpane

I scratch at the glass and leave the script of your name

I sleep with shadows and I search for your scent

They lay where you lay but cant replace what you meant



Everything left when I lost you

Everything keeps keeping on

Its a brave old world

Even though youre gone

Even though youre gone



Even though youre gone
