I held my sparkler as I walked
Death was inevitable but nobody talked
We’d just forget love
We’d strike the match
And the fuse was life and the light was death

And they gave you pills
That made you swell
Lost the hair on your head
Self-image shot to hell
Spent some time at the beach to my surprise
We would walk and watch the waves,
Synthetic hair in your eyes

Time didn’t wear away my feelings for you, love
Just rusted them and made ‘em hard to find
But I love you
Elizabeth you’re mine

And I’ll try my best here love
But when I don’t succeed
Please come visit me in hell,
Cause that’s where I’ll be
But if I do love, will you have the time?
Cause there’s a million other people that deserve you more than I

Now it’s been two years
Since the day you past
And I’m starting to forget the time I kissed you last
And I feel scared
Cause I love you more

But I love you
Elizabeth, you’re mine

    My OpinionHow come this song doesn't have more comments?
    It's so beautifully written and you can feel how much he loved his mother.
    My favorite of his album.

    MemoryThis song really hits home. When I found out my mom had cancer, 'nobody talked' either. These lyrics just capture the moment so beautifully. I love the line 'synthetic hair in your eyes'.
