You used to come, come around the house
Now everything you've got, it's gone cold
And everyone who I have ever loved
Everyone is getting old

You go, go
And you don't come back

I used to see you driving round the town
You and your children always smiled
Now all the things I hold dear to me
Are falling off in pieces

You go, go
And you don't come back

You used to come fixing round the house
Now all your things are getting cold
And everyone who I have ever loved
Everyone is getting old

You go, go
And you don't come back

    General CommentThis song is just lovely :]
    I saw it on Limewire as
    "Electricity in Pine Boxes" though.

    Is this title right then?

    General CommentI think it's about when you see the people around you get older, because sometimes you don't feel it yourself and it's a shock. They're losing their fire and not being able to do the things they liked to do, like help a neighbor.

    General CommentI think this song is about the fact that you cant escape morality, that old age and eventual death is something you cant come back from--a realization thats kinda frightening.
