Titled by Matthew Seligman.


And when I go downstairs
The candle throws her shadow over me
And when I get downstairs
I pass the place she always used to be

And it's strange
How no one else can see
No one else but me

And when I kiss her mouth
I raise the lid and lower it again
And when I kiss her mouth
I never cry, I'm just like other men

But it's strange
How no one else can see
No one else but me

And so she lies there in
The freezer looking elegant and tall
Oh, she could lie there for
A century and never change at all

And it's strange
How no one else can see
No one else but me
No one else but me

No guitar tab entered.
