lyrics

It's coming to my realization
I'm not the man you wanted to be
Before you find out that I'm somebody else
I just want to listen to you breathe

I go home in the morning and my clothes smell like you
Like innocence, vanilla and the crisp morning dew
And I see you everywhere I look
I stumble to the fridge, see cheese that earlier I'd seen
Leftover gravy frozen french fries I'm going to make poutine
And I know you love your poutine
Your face is right here with me like a dream

(Chorus)

I wish that you could be with me
To help me through this journey that I'm on
I just found out the hardest way what they told me is true
You don't know what you've got until it's gone x2

(Chorus)

My shirt still smells like vanilla
It's the same smell that fills up my nose
When you spray that perfume into the air just above you
And wait for the quiet mist to fall upon your clothes
As soon as that fragrance falls into my memory
A thousand thoughts take precedence before the sights that are at hand
I wonder how it'd be if circumstances were changed
And I'm sorry that I couldn't understand

(Chorus)

Now that you're gone I don't know what I'm going to do
I just woke up this morning and thought of you
