lyrics

Hold me up against the light
Can you see the blood course through my veins?
Can you see the highways of my brain?
Afraid of what I’ll find
When I finally take a look inside
When I face what’s hiding in my mind

To my surprise
I’ve forgotten how long it’s been since I tried

Call you up
Am I the same?
Am I close to who you used to know
When we spent our summers on the road?
In Maine and West Virginia
In a crowded van we sang so loud
Thought we had the world all figured out

To my surprise
I’ve forgotten all I have done and who I’ve been
To my surprise
I’ve forgotten how far
I’ve traveled since then

Sit alone
Think of Grandpa
How he saw me through his dying eyes
How he’d feel if he could be alive
To see me at his funeral
Would he close his eyes and nod his head?
Smile softly at the way I read?

To my surprise
I found everything I needed in goodbye
