lyrics

I've only just met you
Standing on the corner
We were kindly introduced
By your best friend's sister

I was very sleepy
Holding onto my coffee
You told me you liked my style
I told you I liked your smile

But will you think of me
When I'm just a box of bones
Hidden 'neath the surface
of some cold forgotten stones
Will you think of me when I'm just a
Word on a page
Isn't it a pity no one reads the news these days?

It's the first day of school
The teacher sits you beside me
You don't know how to tie your shoes
But that's alright cause I don't either

So you take me by the hand
And tell me all of your secrets
We're too young to understand
Just cause you love someone don't mean you can keep them
Just cause you love someone don't mean you can keep them

Oh will you think of me
When I'm just a box of bones
Hidden 'neath the surface
of some cold forgotten stones
Will you think of me when I'm just a
Word on a page
Isn't it a pity no one reads the news these days?

We're on a flight to New York
You say you're from New Jersey
All dressed up in your best suit
To make your important meeting

Will you remember my name tomorrow
Will you remember my name tomorrow
Who will remember your name tomorrow
Who will remember your name?

And will you think of me
When I'm just a box of bones
Hidden 'neath the surface
of some cold forgotten stones
Will you think of me when I'm just a
Word on a page
Isn't it a pity no one reads the news these days?

Who will remember your name tomorrow?
Who will remember your name tomorrow?
I will remember your name tomorrow,
I will remember your name.
