Bring Them Back with A Song

When do you really lose them?
Is it when they up and die
Or is it when the diagnosis
Is one that makes you cry?

When you forget just how they sounded
Or just how they really looked
Do you lose them over time?
Do you forget the food they cooked?

You know you can bring them back with music
One song will bring them here
You’ll remember how they sounded
One song and they are here
You’ll remember when you met them
You’ll remember how they smelled
One song and you’ll remember
All the feelings that you held

Do you lose them when they’re buried?
When you put them in the ground
do you keep an old phone message
To remember how they sound

Just because it takes more time now
To get a picture of their face
Doesn’t mean that you have lost them
They’re still all around the place

You know you can bring them back with music
One song will bring them here
You’ll remember how they sounded
One song and they are here
You’ll remember when you met them
You’ll remember how they smelled
One song and you’ll remember
All the feelings that you held

You never really lose them
They’re in the music and your heart
You can bring them from the ether
Just when the music starts

So know, they’ve never left you
They’re as close as close can be
Though you can’t remember how they sounded
And they take some time to see

You know you can bring them back with music
One song will bring them here
You’ll remember how they sounded
One song and they are here
You’ll remember when you met them
You’ll remember how they smelled
One song and you’ll remember
All the feelings that you held
