The Background Lyrics

by Third Eye Blind

Everything is quiet since you're not around
And I live in the numbness now
In the background

I do the things we did before
I walk [Incomprehensible] street to the store
And they say where's that crazy girl
You don't get drunk on red wine and fight no more
I don't see you anymore
Since the hospital

The plans I make still have you in them
'Cause you come swimmin' into view
And hanging on your words like I always used to do
The words they use so lightly, I only feel for you
I only know because I carry you around
In the background
I'm in the background

Girls they come and memories all repeat
I lift your head while they change the hospital sheets
Ey, I would never lie to you, no
I would never lie to you, no
I felt you long after we were through
We were through

The plans I make still have you in them
'Cause you come swimming into view
And hanging on your words like I always used to do
The words we use so lightly, I only feel for you
I only know because I carry you around
In the background
'Cause I felt you long after we were through

When you come swimmin' into view
And hanging on your words like I always used to do
(Swimmin' into view)
The words they use so lightly, I only feel for you
(Swimmin' into view)
I only know because I'm way, I'm way
In the background
I'm in the background
