There’s a hole in the river
Where they put your body down
It flooded there for weeks
and wet the cursed ground
I see you waving, I see your ghost around
You look like you’re happy
I’m the one who looks drowned

It’s not a big thing
But babe this ain’t a big town
It’s no big thing
But this ain’t a big town

I’ll hold in my bones
That sweet, little heart of yours
It’s not big enough to beat for two anymore
I’ll grow for us both
Since you won’t be growing old
I love you like I told you.

It’s not a big thing
But babe this ain’t a big town
It’s no big thing
But this ain’t a big town

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song about loosing somebody but keeping them forever in your heart.

    Specially when he says, "I'll grow for us both since yuo won't be getting old."
