lyrics

I remember you in the Mississippi blue
As the grass beside the river turned to green
You were just a kid with a lot of stuff kept hid
I always tried to be a place where you might lean
Now, it's crazy, Katie, dear, to think that you're not here
The songs we used to sing still sound the same
'Cept, then again, they don't, I guess it's hard to figure out
I still hope you might pass by this way again

(Chorus)

Katie, a picture lasts forever, darlin'
Katie, I don't think it had to be this way
katie, someday we'll be together, darlin'
Katie, I think about you every single day

It was not so long ago in the early April snow
We sat beside the window and you spoke
As that Springtime nighttime fell, I wonder still if you could tell
I allowed the both of us just a little hope
Now, there're pictures on the wall, I used to love to watch you draw
I got a folder of the stuff you left undone
There's a dream I sometimes have and sometimes I meet you in it
In the silence, for just a second, then you're gone...
