"Headstone"

HEADSTONE Lyrics by Defeater
Hello my dear.
It's so nice to see you here.
How long has it been?
Oh it feels like years,
but I'm sure it's just been days.
I've been walking around alone,
drunk and missing you at home.
You know I'll never feel the same,
or ask another girl to take my name.

I think I've been stopping by too much,
I don't want you to get sick of me.
On my way home from the Copper Coin,
it's this or I jump into the sea.
I will never forgive myself for not being there to protect you,
I should have been at home instead out trying to forget you.
Just one fight and I'm out the door.
What kind of man am I?
I swore I'd never leave your side.
Hello my dear,
it's so hard to see you here.
How long has it been?
since we put you in the ground?
It feels like days, but it's been years.

"And please don't call me baby,
it's just too hard to hear.
Leave you flowers at your headstone
and just sit and talk to you my dear."
