You are far too fragile to exist
I didn't see the hand I'd never kiss
And I barely felt your heartbeat inside of me
The empty patter of your feet is too fast to see

The families all gather round
And they make some sympathetic sounds
Even though i know they're only trying to take my mind off it
I just wanna sit alone and cry myself into a fit
And fall asleep

I would have loved to watch you as you slept
I fill the frames of pictures that I kept
Of you leaping into action on some muddy football field
Or holding the attraction of the one that makes you feel so sick

And I choose to see the life I live
It's one of triumph and of joy that gives
Made of something to hold onto as I'm falling through myself
To the part of me that held you on the darkest shelf inside me.

    Song Meaningwhat a great song. i think it's about him knowing that he needs to let her go in order to move on and be happy, but all he feels at the moment is sadness and would rather self indulge in depression than try to move on. there's a kind of hint that maybe she's passed away (or perhaps simply forgotten about him whilst he has always held on to feelings for her) although i'm not quite sure.
    all in all, touching lyrics + enticing melody = awesome song.

    General Commenti think this song is about of the loss of a child or baby. One of the saddest songs I know, very powerful.

    what an raw yet honest line. haven't we all felt like this at some point?

    General CommentI think the song is about a miscarriage, possibly abortion. The first two sections are about the immediate sense of loss. The third is about the things you miss as the child would have reached certain milestones. Finally is the acceptance. But every once in a while, that sense of loss comes back. Thus the title. It doesn't matter where, Just drive.
