If I Could Give All My Love (Richard Manuel Is Dead) Lyrics

by Counting Crows

Got a message in my head
That the papers had all come
Richard Manuel is dead
And the daylight's coming on

I've been wandering through the dark
Now I'm standing on the lawn

If I could give all my love to you, I could justify myself
But I'm just not coming through, you're a pill to ease the pain
Of all the stupid things I do, I'm an anchor on the line
Of a clock that tells the time that is running out on you

Well, it was cold when I awoke
And the day was halfway done
Nearly spring in San Francisco
And I cannot feel the sun

You were sleeping next to me
But I knew that you'd be gone

If I could give all my love to you, I could justify myself
But I'm just not coming through, you're a pill to ease the pain
Of all the stupid things I do, I'm an anchor on the line
Of a clock that tells the time that is running out on you

Take some time before you go
To think of Mondays coming down
And the people that you knew
And the ones that aren't around

You've been fading day to day
I've been moving town to town

If I could give all my love to you, I could justify myself
But I'm just not coming through, you're a pill to ease the pain
Of all the stupid things I do, I'm an anchor on the line
Of a clock that tells the time that is running out on you

If I could give all my love to you, I could justify myself
But I'm just not coming through, you're a pill to ease the pain
Of all the stupid things I do, I'm an anchor on the line
Of a clock that tells the time that is running out on you
