lyrics

Fade away
lyrics & music by carrie clark

She wraps cellophane on her window panes
She wraps cellophane on her window panes
She wraps cellophane on her window panes
Cause it keeps the cold away
Until the next sunny day

She’s got curlers in her hair
But she’s forgotten that they’re there
She’s got curlers in her hair
And she just walks out in the rain
Cause it washes away her pain

And she really doesn’t care
She just wants him to be there
And she really doesn’t care
She just wants to remember before
Her memories have all been sold

The yellow house upon the hill
Is the place she gets her fill
The yellow house upon the hill
Is where her memories start to fade

In her garden in the yard
Masquerading like copper colored movie stars
In her garden in the yard
Under a red umbrella she starts to cry
And she can’t remember why

And she really doesn’t care
She just wants him to be there
And she really doesn’t care
She just wants to remember before
Her memories have all been sold

Like the lightening bugs in a jar
Shining just like the stars
Like the lightening bugs in a jar
Her memories of him start to fade

And like a million miles of stars
Evaporating into jars
And like a million miles of stars
They ignite and fall like rain
Like her tears she can’t explain
As her memories all turn grey
And before she knows it he just fades away
