it's not your style to be sad.
but all us here just don't know what to do with ourselves.

who needs hair these days?
supermodels couldn't make sick look good like you did.

ash babe,
ash babe i don't want this to be a sad song
it just comes out that way.

i want to be around people.
want to mention the things that bring out the tears in us.

i want to drink 'till i regret it,
melt ya down into something
that i can take around in my pocket.

ash babe,
ash babe i don't want this to be a sad song
it just comes out that way.
and i want to remember
want to remember
want to remember.

    My InterpretationThis song is about a girlfriend/wive/mother who has passed away from some illness, likely cancer.

    "it's not your style to be sad.
    but all us here just don't know what to do with ourselves.

    who needs hair these days?
    supermodels couldn't make sick look good like you did."

    Chemo that makes you sickly, skinny, and lose hair.

    "i want to drink 'till i regret it,
    melt ya down into something
    that i can take around in my pocket.

    ash babe,
    ash babe i don't want this to be a sad song
    it just comes out that way.
    and i want to remember"

    I think that the character dies, and is cremated. The speaker wants to keep her around as a momento, like how you can make diamonds out of ash.
