From the recording Bucket List
I can still hear Mandy cryin’ in the night
Takin’ all of the blame
I can still see Mandy, tears in her eyes
Her words all speak his name
I can still see Mandy, ribbon from her hair
Playing with a kitten in the sunshine
I can still hear Mandy, knowing he’s not there
Hopin’ he’ll be comin’ back sometime
She knows she should
But she can’t believe he’s never comin’ back
He’s gone for good
And she won’t ever understand
The love she once shared with this man
Was long ago and cannot be retrieved
I can still hear Mandy, cryin’ in the night
Longing for the love she’ll never know
I can still see Mandy, never catching sight
Of the moments when she knows she should let go
If she could only see that I love her
And that my love would never fade
How can I make her see the writin’ on the wall
When she refuses to see anything but him at all
Oh, so long ago and cannot be retrieved
