i'd never leave you here
like the color on your cheek
and i'd cover everything
you don't want them to see

this is the sound
this is the sound of leaving

you're keeping clothes and selling cars
because there's more room at your feet
and you crawl into your quiet house
but you'll see him when you sleep

this is the sound
this is the sound of leaving

    General CommentI feel like this song is the end of a really special relationship, whether it is because of death or simply just breaking up. The first verse is sort of saying, "Yes. We're separating, but I'll still be here." And the second verse is just talking about how hard it is to adjust without that person.
    Now, Now is going to get very big.
