lyrics

HOW TO REPLACE WHAT IS GONE

intro: [G F] x2 G F C
verse: C F
chorus: G F C
bridge: Dm F C Dm G C

i remember my home, i remember my youth
i remember the way you could suss out the truth
& you were the first man that i'd ever known
& i was the son that moved out on my own
oh i never said thank you but i thought you heard
we are taciturn men with emotions interred
i remember my mother that night on the phone
your hearts were both broken -- fresh as a bone

CH.
& help me, cause i can't take this
tell me i don't gotta take anymore

the roadside attractions, the bedside detail
& teenage contempt is a working man's jail
you taught me the tricks but still i was all thumbs
but i saw you smile when i played the drums

CH.
& help me, cause i can't take this
oh tell me how to replace what is gone

BR.
& i won't let you down, i won't disappoint you
& someday i will find you, someday i will join you
yeah...
& nothing short of heartache ever made me cry
& nothing short of leaving made me say goodbye

all these common feelings crowd our
tender hearts our mended parts will
always be a million cracks we
can't relax we want you back...

[repeat last chorus]
