I'm going to let you have this, in all its imperfection. I'm very proud of this song. A great big thank you to Suzi for the singing.

Lyrics:

they're all tucked away in boxes
tucked away in drawers
they're all wrinkled up and faded
like things I wore
I keep 'em there cuz I still love you
love you even more
they're all I find when I don't find
what I'm looking for

a broken heart's an awful way
to win a war
if we both lose and people die
who's keeping score?
who will build memorials
what will they be for?
at least there won't be
any fighting anymore

love the one you're with
and hold the one you're near
she's not the one for you
but at least she's here
so keep your sidewalk clear
and the light on the door
and don't give up on love
love more

the smoke will clear
and you will find
some distant shore
alone or with the ghosts of those
whose arms held yours
remember her
cuz she's the one
you came here for
but this is not a place
where she would be
she wanted more

so love the one you're with
and hold the one you're near
she's not the one for you
but at least she's here
so keep your sidewalk clear
and the light on the door
and don't give up on love
love more

Your imperfection sounds flawless! Nice song!

Thanks Ben, for posting this. After some hard labour at putting this track together (or…maybe not in Suzi’s case), it turned out mighty fine. Like I told you before, your voices compliment each other. C’est bien!
