[chorus]
“she doesn’t remember,” they said
a head and a body, but she’s not there
“she doesn’t remember,” they said
a head and a body, but you’re not there

[verse 1]
i was sat building sandcastles on the beach
when you appeared and told us you were swimming to albania
a stallion in a black swimsuit
long, russet mane fanned out behind
we watched as you submerged yourself in the water
no questions asked
three hours later you wеre a dot on the horizon
i’ve nеver seen anyone swim so fast

[chorus]
“she doesn’t remember,” they said
a head and a body, but you’re not there

[verse 2]
ten years later, the same family holiday
same beach, same house, same thing
seven of us on a rickety old boat
moored in the middle of the ionian sea
i watch you out of the corner of my sunglasses
you’re unaware
your daughter’s in the water holding out her hand
but you’re sullen, you’re scared

[chorus]
“she doesn’t remember,” they said
a head and a body, but she’s not there
“she doesn’t remember,” they said
a head and a body, but you’re not there

[verse 3]
it was your funeral today and no one could go because of coronavirus
it’s hard to get my head around the idea that you’re gone
we’ve been watching you fade so softly, so slowly for so long
i was scared of your harshness, your sharpness, your edges and your strength from before
but as you began to forget yourself, i grew to love you more
[chorus]
“she doesn’t remember,” they said
a head and a body, but she’s not there
“she doesn’t remember,” they said
a head and a body, but you’re not there

[bridge]
serrated edges soften
blunt as a b*tter knife
no one’s ever ready to watch someone they love
lose their mind

serrated edges soften
blunt as a b*tter knife
no one’s ever ready to watch someone they love
lose their mind

[chorus]
“she doesn’t remember,” they said
a head and a body, but you’re not there
