The Dying Side

from While We're Here

The Dying Side

Words and Music by Catie Curtis and Jenna Lindbo

Everything where we left it

When we got back home

Crossword on the counter

Jackets by the door

Tickets to the ballgame

Paper on the porch

Blueprints on the table

So much we’re planning for

When you walked over that bridge to the dying side

Did you see a band of angels

Did you see your loved ones eyes

I’ve been trying

I’ve been wondering

Did it take you by surprise

It’s so hard to believe you’d leave without goodbye

I’m going through the motions

All in a daze

People asking to help us

I can’t think of ways

I keep feeling like I hear you coming through the door

Everything I used to handle I can’t handle anymore

When you walked over that bridge to the dying side

Did you see a band of angels

Did you see your loved ones eyes

I’ve been trying

I’ve been wondering

Did it take you by surprise

It’s so hard to believe you’d leave without goodbye

Your face, your eyes, beautiful and wise

You leave us broken hearted

When you walked over that bridge to the dying side

Did you see a band of angels

Did you see your loved ones eyes

I’ve been trying

I’ve been wondering

Did it take you by surprise

It’s so hard to believe
