Devendra Banhart I Remember Lyrics

I remember a far away laugh a sweet caress you'd help me zip up my dress.
And I remember your arms wrapped around my neck twenty one shells wrapped in a nest.
Endlessness. Didn't last.
I won't change given the chance.

I remember no place for me to hide. Before you came home at night.
And I remember you turnin' out the lights all i ever saw was the red in your eyes.
No big surprise. Happened nearly every night your own flesh & blood.
I did wonder why.

I remember not knowing what to say & how calm you had remained your child still born with no name.
I remember the never ending summer rain.

Please don't let what was get in the way of whats next.
Don't forget that whats to come hasn't come yet.
