One Year Ago [DEMO]

by Ship & Sail



This song is about remembering someone you've loved and lost for their positive attributes and the fun memories. The laughs are important to remember. This song is a reminder that we continue to grow and learn, and that is not because of our lack of sadness for the loss, but the opposite. It is because we see in them something great that we miss, and with that we learn to find that in ourselves and bring it to fruition.


Basketball in the street
The room next to me
A journal by your bed
The lyrics in your head
You always cheated at board games
But we played anyway
Christmas feels so different
It will never be the same

Come back home
You’re not alone
One year ago
You said no

Tell me again you’ll always love me
Tell me again which way
To take the foul on a layup
In this basketball game
I don’t believe much in fate
but id like to say
you and mom are together
In some type of way

She said come back home
You’re not alone
One year ago
You said no
It’s just the truth
We were hard on you
When he died I grew
And so will you
