Johnston, Daniel - I Remember Painfully Lyrics




I remember how we looked at the embryo in the jar together
And I remember how we stood talking in the store to each other
It was love
But what is it now
It's pain

I remember your face and I remember your grace
I remember, I remember, I just remember
And I remember how we laughed at the jokes that we had between us
And I remember how we talked and mocked each other blatantly
It was fun
But what is it now
It's pain

And I remember how you smiled
And that light that was in your eyes
And I remember how pretty you were always a pleasant surprise
It was nice
But what is it now
It's pain

I remember your face and I remember your grace
I remember, I remember, I just remember
And I remember you at the funeral shaking hands and hanging coats
And I remember you standing pregnant at the art room
It was weird
But what is it now
It's pain

I remember your face and I remember your grace
I remember, I remember, I just remember
When I saw you at the department store
I said "have a nice baby"
You were standing happy, I left you with that smile on your face
Years later I was hitchhiking and that mortician picked me up
Then he said to me, he said "good luck"

I remember how we looked at the embryo in the jar together
And I remember how we stood talking in the store to each other
It was love
But what is it now
It's pain

Danny don't rap, Danny...

  1. Nick Born

    Probably less metaphorical than that... I think he's singing directly about Lorie Allen's husband, who was a mortician, and when he went to a funeral he saw her there, at the funeral home, hanging coats.
