There’s a cup on the counter that proves you were here
A gentle reminder of what once was was clear
Should it be in the sink or with my souvenirs?

The bed is a wreck where you once slept
The love that we shared there it made such a mess
The sheets are reminders of something we kept

I’ve got this feeling that you won’t be back
Is this a pain in my chest or a heart attack
As it stabs my truth or or was that my back

Chorus:
But what I collect now are lines on my face
The gray in my hair it is no disgrace
Its one more reminder of these past few years
Should I wash these sheets or put them with my souvenirs?

There’s a cheap little magnet that I bought in Perth
It pays rent in the kitchen for all that it’s worth
It lights up a spot for all that come here
But it earns its keep among my souvenirs

There’s a folder on my desktop from Portland I think
It’s real swell reminder if I want to wink
At the time spent with you that took all these years
It stands in the my life amoung my souvenirs

But what I collect now are lines on my face
The gray in my hair it is no disgrace
Its one more reminder of these last few years
Should I wash these sheets or put them with my souvenirs?
