Here I sit alone
Ride through the Motor City
Crying inside
I'm dying inside
I can remember you
Like a photo, like a star
It moves like
I wanna be like you
I remember you

I'm covered in black
But I remember you
You ain't coming back

I see your face
And I feel fine
When I see your face

Last time you saw me
I'll never forget
You looked at me
Like we'd never met
Hold my head down
And look up to the sky
Crack a smile
I say goodbye
I remember you

I'm covered in black
I remember you
I'm still in black

All in time we die
In time we die

I remember you
I'm still in black
Never coming back

    My InterpretationSurprised no one's made the attempt to interpret this really good song..
    My take on it is that the singer, Nick, reflects on the memories of him and his ex who lived in Detroit, the Motor City, who had passed away (hence the lyrics "All in time we die, In time we die", and "Here I sit alone ... Crying inside, I'm dying inside").
    He's "covered in black" and full of regret on how the relationship didn't work out and that she's no longer coming back since she's passed. But he feels fine when he reminisces what her face looked like in his mind.
    The second verse tells how she didn't even acknowledge him as an old flame during the last time they saw each other, but he smiles about this memory and reiterates the line "I remember you" to tell her that she still meant the same to him after the break up.
    The last lines about how he's still in black and never coming back are that he's in a dark place, and will be for a long time, and feels he will never recover after losing her.

    Melancholy lyrics with a beautiful vibe to it. Then again, it could just be about drugs..
