Traces of You

verse 1: You're sleeping right beside me
But I feel so far away
We fought until the morning
When we had nothing left to say
verse 2: I dreamed of newer places
And of leaving you behind
But as I replay the details
I laugh at what I find
chorus: 'Cause in my dream there were traces of you
The clothes you wear, the books you read
The crazy things you do
I thought I dreamed of leaving
But when I think it through
In my dream there were traces of you
verse 3: I made it through the workday
Distracted by my fear
You must have had your own doubts
But I step inside the house and know you're here
chorus: 'Cause in our home there are traces of you
The clothes you wear, the books you read
The crazy things you do
I thought you might be leaving
But that must not be true
'Cause in our home there are traces of you
bridge: You've wandered through my heart
And scattered pieces of yourself about
Like breadcrumbs in the dark
But you'll never truly find your way back out
chorus: 'Cause in my heart there are traces of you
The clothes you wear, the books you read
The crazy things you do
I know I'll never leave you
'Cause when I think it through
In my heart there are traces of you
tag: In my heart there are traces of you
