Nail In the Wall

I can still see us smiling in that 8 X 10 space

That weekend in Aspen, on top of the world

I really should put something else in its place

Who knows, maybe tomorrow I will

Chorus:

Memory by memory

Taking you down

Till there’s nothing left of you at all

Little by little

I picture you gone

But there’s still that nail in the wall

That shot glass from Cabo is gathering dust

Rattling ‘round my dresser drawer

This bottle of wine I was saving for us

I’ll just drink it alone, I don’t care anymore

Why just this morning, for a minute or two

I didn’t think of you at all

Memory by memory

You’re leaving my mind

Till there’s nothing left of you at all

Little by little

Only a matter of time

Till it’s just a nail in the wall
