Caulfields – The Day That Came And Went lyrics

I don't remember much about you
I was barely seven when Mom came home without you
But I knew right then
Life was changing fast
I don't know why I remember these things
Your pipe tobacco and the pinch of a bee sting
Entwined together in a memory long passed

As the years go by I remember the moments
The sound of your voice
Your particular sent
Sometimes I eulogize
I mythologize
Secnes cut from a day that came and went

Whenever dusk falls in April or May
I feel like I'm back in the yard where I played
And it feels like the day I knew you'd gone away
They never let me say goodbye to you
They thought I was too young and wouldn't know what to do
But I'm telling you right now
That was their mistake
Why did you leave me
Why did you go right then
Did you know somehow that I'd never be what I am
If you were here to guide my hand
To this day
