Sung by Minneapolis-based Natalie Fine, who currently sings with Nightlights, Sabby White and Throw the House.


She asked me how tall I was
Then she asked again
Every moment the world starts anew
It must be kinda strange
To look around
At all the faces trying not to look at you
I don’t know how, I don’t know why
All I know is I won’t say goodbye
I know you’re there, taking your time
And I know that I’m the next in line

But I won’t run, I might hide
I won’t laugh, I’ll probably cry
I might get mad, but I won’t know why
I won’t recall
Anything at all
After all

On a summer Sunday
I’d ask him about his life
He’d tell me the same stories every time
The details disappear
The meaningful remains
A story never spoken always dies
I don’t know when, I don’t know why
All I know is I never said goodbye
I know you’re there, taking your time
And I know that I’m the next in line

Some day I’ll listen
To the music in the air
I’ll hear the notes, but I won’t know the song
Then you’ll take my hand, and tell me that it’s mine
And I’ll know that I won’t have too long
I won’t know how, I won’t know why
This is how I say goodbye
I know you’re there, taking my time
And I wonder who’s the next in line

They won’t run, they might hide
They won’t laugh, they’ll probably cry
They might get sad, but they won’t know why
They won’t recall anything at all
After all.
