"Dominoes" as written by and Butch Walker....
Sitting with the dog
Trying to clear the fog
Of the memory, the last time
I saw her face

Fifty years of time
An accident would take my mind
Shortly after take my wife away from me

Everybody knows, memories will keep you alive
Some of them can't be erased
If I remember one today
Let it be of Grace

Cat skills are all frozen
Playing dominoes
And I can hear a voice reminding me
I'm her hero

Finding myself able
With the chair across the table
To remember that it wasn't always empty

Everybody knows, memories will keep you alive
Some of them just won't go away
If there's a memory left of Grace
Let it come back today

And I see her beside me
As the grandkids, they remind me
She's in the cemetery
That we played in as kids

They just think I'm crazy
But the things she tells me lately
Are the only things that I cannot forget

Everybody knows, memories will keep us alive
Some of them just can't be erased
If I remember one today
Let it be of Grace

    General Commentit's about his grand parents.. this song is so sad. at the show i went to he explained this song.

    it was something about how his grandmother/grabdfather had alzheimer's and struggled to remember their beloved, no matter how long they stood by each other and wrote this song after they died i believe.

    i can't remember the exact explanation but its somehwere along those lines.

    General CommentThese lyrics are beautiful, the topic is so sad.. But something about the sound of the song I don't like. His voice or the melody maybe... I don't know. Definitely not a song I could listen to over and over.
