The way you'd close your eyes
Your lashes against mine
The way you used to smile
I'd bite my lip and smile
The light was baby blue
And I'd take care of you
And our baby too
I would marry you
The glacier looked so sweet
We said we'd never leave
You said it must be fate
You found your soul mate
Now I think too much
"I don't drink enough,"
And then I drink too much
I don't think enough
So go and roll your eyes
A paradox; you'd like
To think that you're right
Well, you're right, alright
You'll stay forever tonight
You'll stay forever

When you left that day
I thought you'd be back again
"She's my baby girl;
she'll come back I'm sure"
But Jerry don't you know
That she's not yours to hold
She could hold you back
One more drink, one more heart attack
Jerry what'd you do?
Cause now you're losing you
why would you lose that ring?
Rachel really loved you
Rachel really loved you

Now I think too much
"I don't drink enough,"
And then I drink too much
I don't think enough
So go and roll your eyes
A paradox; you'd like
To think that you're right
Well, you're right, you're right, you're right, you're right
You'll stay forever that night
You'd never leave that night
You'll stay forever alright
Guess you'll stick, soft; sex
Losing words for you
And when you're kissing him
I hope he gets the same
You'd never leave

Now we're getting married
That baby's on its way
Her name would be Quinn
It's hard not to pretend

    General Commentthis song is amazing, i really want the tabs to it...the ending is so deep and you can tell it TRULY IS FROM HIS HEART by the "sorry" Jerry says at the end...personally this song hurts me the most when he says "when you left that day..." just that whole part is so touching...

    General CommentSuch an emotional song. I cried the first time I heard this, and i NEVER cry over songs (at least not the first time I hear them).
    The whole song is so simple and quiet but so gut-wrenching and tragic at the same time. A masterpiece, no doubt.

    General Commentamazing song.
    and for the tabs, the song is on piano (obviously.)
    but if you want to play it on guitar, the chords are:
    D-AM-EM-G

    just figure out the pattern, it isn't hard.

    this song gives me goosebumps everytime i hear it.

    General Commentthis is such a beautiful and emotion filled song. however, these lyrics are incorrect. it's not "Rachel really loved you, Rachel really loved you" it's "Bitch really loved you, Bitch, i really loved you"

    thats my favorite line too.
