lyrics

the plain, green dress she wore
a search for grace in imitation
to make them pay attention
before the bloom was gone
afternoons tied to the willow
or spying through the window

left behind, "care of the water"
there's no flash before her eyes
and it doesn't look like drowning
so never mind, never mind

to think what could have been
all the letters left unanswered
a promise unremembered

left behind, "care of the water"
there's no flash before her eyes
and it doesn't look like drowning
so never mind, never mind

whispering "care of the water"
there's no sadness in her eyes
and it doesn't look like drowning
so never mind, never mind
