I'll Never Know

  • I remember the room With the TV on
    And you sitting asleep before you were gone
    We watched Thousands Cheer and Lily Mars
    Strike Up the Band and Babes in Arms
    Brush light on the walls Crash against the glass
    And I'd watch your ash Fall into your lap

    I loved to watch the ghosts
    Of cigarette smoke Turning lithe and blue
    And I loved the time we spent alone
    That you never knew

    Now I have a room with a TV on
    I try to stay awake before I'm gone
    Sometimes I don't but I can feel you there
    When I'm losing track and I don't react

    My mothers ghost
    Of cigarette smoke curling calm and blue
    And I love us being alone in the TV glow
    When I think you don't know but you do Writer/s: JEFF TWEEDY
