You looked at me and turned to fill the salt shaker
Even-though it was your time to go
You left your favorite plant next to the coffee-maker
How you stayed this long, I'll tell you when I know

All these walls are falling in on me
like the people that we used to know
and the people, that we used to be

Take me to the ocean, by the waterside
We'll fade into the motion of the outgoing tide
Laughter is the thing I miss the most
I looked into the mirror this morning
could've sworn I saw a ghost

I've been here all along
I've been here all along
I've been here all along
I've been here all along

You still bring me coffee
even-though I let you down
You don't call as often
but you worry when I'm not around

January's caving in on me
All those things I thought I needed
are dropping like degrees

Take me to the ocean, by the waterside
We'll fade into the motion of the outgoing tide
Laughter is the thing I miss the most
I looked into the mirror this morning
could've sworn I saw a ghost

I've been here all along
I've been here all along
I've been here all along
I've been here all along

We can't change the things that we don't know
I think about the promises I couldn't make to you five years ago
I'm holding on
I'm hanging on
I'm moving on
I'm not moving on...

I find myself avoiding the salt shaker
And every man must turn to face his mouse
I keep your favorite plant next to the coffeemaker
It's the only living thing left in the house

I've been here all along
I've been here all along
I've been here all along
I've been here all along

I've been dead all along
I've been dead all along
I've been dead all along
I've been dead all along
