Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town ~ Pearl Jam.

 

 



I seem to recognize your face

haunting, familiar, yet I can't seem to place it

cannot find the candle of thought to light your name

lifetimes are catching up with me

all these changes taking place, I wish I'd seen the place

but no one's ever taken me

hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away...

hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away...

I swear I recognize your breath

memories like fingerprints are slowly raising

me, you wouldn't recall, for I'm not my former

it's hard when, you're stuck upon the shelf

I changed by not changing at all, small town predicts my fate

perhaps that's what no one wants to see

I just want to scream...hello...

my god its been so long, never dreamed you'd return

but now here you are, and here I am

hearts and thoughts they fade...away...

hearts and thoughts they fade...away...

hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away...

hearts and thoughts they fade...
