Wistful, she was (is)
talking so much about the way things
Not exactly nostalgic, but certainly
preoccupied with how her life had been.
Sentimental, she was (still is, probably)
singing songs about people she loved; people she lost.
I like to tell myself I was one of those people.
But didn't ask her and
I'll never know.
and i wonder where you are
and if the pain ends when you die
and i wonder if there was
some better way to say goodbye
Patty Griffin -Goodbye
