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, 'Cause I don't see you anymore, Since the hospital, But the plans I make still have you in them, Then 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 this because I carry you around, In the background.
Words they come and memories all repeat, I lift your head while, They change the hospital sheets, I would never lie to you, No I would never lie to you, No I felt you long after we were through. And 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 this because I carry you around, In the background.

Breeauna from Amarillo TxWhen I listen to this song I think about my mom, I know she's here, but most of the time it really isn't her she's just sitting there high. This song is the best by far.
Rb from IndianaTo me, the song comes down to hearing the line "All my plans still have you in them." I was dating a girl and realized she had made her way into all of my plans and just maybe she might be the one. We've been married 22 years tomorrow!
