the background lyrics – 3 eb

everything is quiet since you’re not around
and i live in the numbness now
in the background
i do the things we did before
i walk haight street to the store
and they say where’s that crazy girl
you don’t get drunk on red wine and fight no more
i don’t see you anymore since the hospital
the plans i make still have you in them
cause you come swimming into view
and i’m hanging on your words
like i always used to do
the words they use so lightly
i only feel for you
i only know because i carry you around
in the background
i’m in the background
words they come and memories all repeat
i lift your head while they change the hospital sheets
and i would never lie to you no
i would never lie to you no
i felt you long after we were through, we were through
the plans i make still have you in them
cause you come swimming into view
and i’m hanging on your words
like i always used to do
the words they use so lightly
i only feel for you
i only know because i carry you around
in the background
cause i felt you long after we were through
well you come swimming into view
and i’m hanging on your words
like i always used to do
the words they use so lightly
i only feel to you
i only know because
i’m way i’m way in the background
i’m in the background
