I'll watch you run away
through the peaceful fields
all the times you've dripped right through my hands
I'd cover you with anything you want

my arms only reach so far
there's so many pieces
burn down that house again
nothing to remember
why do I dream out loud to you
wish I could sleep forever
I know I don't belong
where the water runs so free

wish I remembered what was said
your childish ways make me think too hard
I know how much time I have wasted
I hope I don't make that mistake again

I guess it's not a secret that I'm keeping
I guess it doesn't matter all that much to you
I look around and everyone is laughing and they're smiling
you've crowded up my head and now it's full
you've crowded up my head and now it's full

    General CommentThis is probably the best song ever written by Piebald. Masterpiece Theater here we come.

    General CommentThe most beautiful song in the world. I cry every time I hear this song, and learning the tablature to it was the most rewarding thing in my life. You Won't Be Seeing Me Again is the most intense, most...just absolutely beautiful song I have ever heard.

    General CommentHey fugazi, do you still have the tab for this song? I tried to write you a mail but it seems your adress doesn't exist anymore. So if you ever read this and you still have that tab, I would love you forever if you could send it to my mail adress! I love Piebald and I love this song and what I would love even more is to know how to play it on my guitar. :)
