You better hold her hand
You can’t take her with you
You better kiss her face
She’s not going with you
Have you ever loved somebody who’s a lot like sand
A million fragments slipping through your hands
You can scream and scream but she can’t hear
She’ll disappear

Chorus:
If you’re checking in your mail box one more time (don’t forget her)
If you’re singing to the radio one more time (don’t forget her)
If you’re putting on her favorite jeans one more time (don’t forget her)
Don’t forget that you loved her

You watched her walk away
You won’t see her again
You smell her in your room
She won’t be there again
She’s like storm water she’s flowing in and out of lives
Eroding everything in her sight
You can scream and scream
There’s nothing you can do
‘Cause she can’t hear you

Repeat Chorus

‘Til you acknowledge all the pain that she put you through
You’ll never move on like you need to
I’m telling you baby one more time
Don’t forget that you loved her
(Remember the lines on her face…)
