You were the only thing I ever loved
Taken for granted you couldn't stand it, anymore
You were my lover for nearly 8 years
But I am my father and I found another

The last 16 months have been nothing but hell
I thought about jumping, but that would be something
In the short time that I learned how to fly
Would you forgive me, or bring flowers to me, by the grave

Will you look the same when I meet you up there
Remember my name, please
Will you look the same when I meet you up there
Remember my name, find me to forgive

I haven't seen you for over a year
I heard you were married, the baby you carried isn't mine
I don't suppose that you'll still have my name
You'll have another if you're not my lover, anymore

Will you look the same when I meet you up there
Remember my name, please
Will you look the same when I meet you up there
Remember my name, find me to forgive (x's 4)

    General Comment(Track 11 from the album The Sparrow and the Crow)

    The plea of remorse; he has apologized by every means he that he can except to his ex-wife directly. He hopes that she will cherish what was enough so that at some point in mortality or beyond he will be able to deliver his apology.

    The line “I haven’t seen you for over a year. I heard you were married; the baby you carried isn't mine,” is intriguing. Is the child his, and the new husband has assumed the roll of father; or is the child not his, and it turns out that she was unfaithful too?

    General CommentI think this song on the album splits it in two halves, one half leads to "life" and the other half leads to "death". The decision comes with how you view the second stanza, and first chorus of this song. The bonus track "Funeral Dress" brings this song and the album full circle. In "Funeral Dress" he talks about not being able to wait for his ex-wife, the lover, to be able to "cross that line" which is death. In this song he may, or may not commit suicide based on your view of the second stanza. If he does though (and dies from the fall) then the final stanza is him wandering in death, finally looking back down on her. If he lives, then it's just about him moping, regretting, reminiscing and trying to move on. The fact that "Funeral Dress" was not included on the original release lends to the belief that Fitzsimmon's wanted people to have a more optimistic view of the ending then death.

    General Commentit's amazing how many times I've listened to this song and I finally was able to really listen to it. the meaning is pretty clear, and when you really pay attention, it's the saddest thing ever.

    Will you look the same when I meet you up there
    Remember my name, please
