lyrics


I remember in the spring back when I had no car.
I'd walk all over town no matter how far
singing songs with simple melodies
That I'd never heard, and never will again

I sang:
Everything you give room to grow goes away.
I tried so hard to keep them in my head anyway.


The summer came. I met a girl. She became my girlfriend.
We hit a wall and in the fall I lost her in the end.
Our love was like a simple melody of a song I’d never heard
and never will again.

Everything you give room to grow goes away.
I tried so hard to keep her in my arms anyway.


Everything you give room to grow goes away.
I try so hard to keep them in my hands anyway.


The winter's here and I hear the raindrops tapping on my roof
Drumming out the year, the walks, the girl
and how they'd come and gone in simple melodies of songs I’d never heard
and never will again.
