Eilen Jewell - "I Remember You"


I remember you
You were full of broken bones
I tried to bring you cigarettes
You said just leave me alone
I remember you
You were locked in a padded room
I tried to teach you solitaire
You just hollered at the moon
I remember you
I remember you

I remember you
We were Bonnie and Clyde
We thought we’d go down in history
I guess we changed our minds
You’re a hundred worlds away now
I’m sure it’s for the best
You’re practically a stranger now
But you stand out from the rest
‘Cause I remember you
I remember you

I remember you
You told the stories of your scars
We kept each other’s secrets
And slept in empty cars

I remember you
I showed you how to kiss
I let you shoot my hats off
‘Cause I knew you wouldn’t miss
And I remember you
I remember you

I remember you
We would’ve died intertwined
We talked in tongues of a kinship
We could only deny
Now you think you’re anonymous,
A masked face without a name
But I know you’re one of us
Underneath you’re still the same
And I remember you
I remember you
