lyrics

Once you were here but now you’re gone.
Once you were gone but now you’re here.
Once you were here but now you’re gone.
Once you were gone but now you’re here.

Purple frigid skin.
Flies crawling around.
Eyes sunken in.
Still and silent so I know you’re gone gone gone gone gone gone gone gone.

Once you were here but now you’re gone.
Once you were here but now you’re gone.
Once you were here but now you’re gone.
Once you were here but now you’re gone.

Pink wrinkled skin.
Shriveled up face.
Fontanelles sunken in.
Screaming for the first time so we know you are okay. “Okay!”

Once you were gone but now you’re here.
Once you were gone but now you’re here.
Once you were gone but now you’re here.
Once you were gone but now you’re here.

Once you were here but now you’re gone.
Once you were gone but now you’re here.
Once you were here but now you’re gone.
Once you were gone but now you’re here.

Hey, that was a pretty nice dream.
You turned your blue eyes green.
Hey, that as a pretty weird dream.
No one knows just what you’ve seen.
Hey, that was a pretty nice dream.
You turned your black eyes brown.
Hey, that as a pretty weird dream.
No one knows just what you’ve found.

I wrote the meanest song about you. I wrote the sweetest song for you,
it was time to sleep and time to dream.
I wrote the sweetest song for you. I wrote the meanest song about you,
why can’t you identify as anything?

I wrote the sweetest song about you.
Once you were gone but now you’re here.
