Everybody Tells Her That

packing tape can’t suffocate his voice from memories
nor chase his ghost away from this room she never leaves
but it’s not a home – it’s part museum and part shrine
a roadblock is all he’s left behind

and everybody tells her that, she’s gotta move on

sun faded photographs from golden summer days
boxes of letters from a devoted fiance
recall a time when nothing could bring her to her knees
and grief was only make believe

and everybody tells her that, she’s gotta move on

but in her prime she used to dance along the cracks of broken dreams
so dangerous yet ever so serene

objects of veneration honor all regrets
from that night in Riverside, she swears she caused the wreck
and like twin paper lanterns abandoned to the rain
her eyes just never shine the same

but everybody tells her that, she’s gotta move on
