lyrics

May 16,
a year has gone by
a year has gone by
everything thought I knew
hurts to hold onto.

A whale lives in the sea
just down the hill from me
sometimes she takes me for a ride
when I am feeling down
thats when she comes around
and we both head out with the tide
and down under we go
she tells me I’ll be okay
If I just do what’s right

So I gotta pick this thing up off the ground
lift my arms and swing it around
and let go...

A coral choir sings
there’s angels, clowns and kings
hold on we’re going down where the dark things fly
but the deeper down I go
the less I want to know
the less i want to see, the truth may set me free
but it’ll still make me cry
of all the stupid things
why did I have to did I have to bring
all this extra weight?

Cause I gotta pick this thing up off the ground
lift my arms and swing it around
I gotta pick this thing up off the ground
and let go, let it go...

lift the rock and toss it
lift the block and rock it
tie yourself to it while you’re at it...

I wake up and it’s all gone
she’s just sitting there with the tape recorder on
but it was all so real, why do i feel -

Like I gotta pick this thing up off the ground
lift my arms and swing it around
I gotta pick this thing up off the ground
lift my arms and swing it around and around and around
and let go.

May 16,
a year has gone by
