lyrics

Time won't heal what time has wrought
It wasn't cheap, it can't be bought
I get it now, you had to go
I had to stay right here, you know

Couldn't take the burden
Baby, you sure took a little time to yourself
Calling missing persons
I can't bear to take your picture down from my shelf

I can't bear to take it down 'cause I can't bear to give you up
I felt better when you went away, but the feeling never stuck
I can't bear to take it down, save you're never here at all
I still need to bear this torch to see your picture on the wall

You were sweet, so was I
How come I feel like the bad guy?
It's been so long, is this a test?
Your face becomes a blurry mess

Couldn't take the burden
Out of all the people, said you liked me the most
Calling missing persons
Seeing you would be akin to seeing a ghost
