Oh, Kathleen

I believe this to be the second song I ever wrote. Inspired by watching my best friend sort through old photos in her basement. (Circa 2005)

These photos are making me more nostalgic than ever, I’m pining for the old days. I guess what they say is a lie, cause honey, we didn’t even try to stick together after he died. We just let ourselves fall apart, cause he went down with our hearts and we didn’t know what to do without him.

I remember all those years we went down to the beach, and that one time we thought we lost you in the sea; after hours of searching we came back in, only to find you under some blankets in the den.

Oh Kathleen, I can’t believe it’s been 10 years and we didn’t speak. No, we haven’t said a word.

I can’t imagine how much you’ve grown, or even how long it’s been since you’ve been inside our home. If I saw you today… I don’t even know what I’d say. Maybe things are better this way.
