lyrics

You were all I had on saturday
I was coming home to love you love you down
And now I still forget on sadder days
That you're not at home, that you're not around

Living with your pain all autumn
Ain't a soul who could solve em
But I could've been more there for you
I could've told you that I cared for you
I should've said something that night
When you looked me in the eye and
Told me bout the time when
You were eighteen and you wanted to die
So you went and laid down in the dark on the highway
You said you were there just laying
But no cars ever came and
After half an hour you got up and you went back home
Cause you got sick of waiting
You laughed when you told me that story
And so I did too, but
I should've been more worried
I should've known what you would do

In my mind I'll always keep it close
One more time, before I let you go

You were all I had on saturday
I was coming home to love you love you down
And now I still forget on sadder days
That you're not at home, that you're not around

In my mind I'll always keep it close
One more time, before I let you go
In my mind I'll always keep it close
One more time, so I could let you know

That you were all I had on saturday
I just wasn't home in time to love you down
And now I still forget on sadder days
Which of us is gone, and which is still around
