This song is performed by Third Eye Blind and appears on the album Third Eye Blind (1997).
Everything is quiet
Since you're not around
And I live in the numbness, now
In the background

I do the things we did before
I walk Haight Street to the store
And they say "Where's that crazy girl
"You don't get drunk on red wine and fight no more."
I don't see you anymore
Since the hospital

The plans I make still have you in them
'Cause you come swimming into view
And I'm hanging on your words like I always used to do
The words they use so lightly, I only feel for you
I only know because I
Carry you around, in the background
(I'm in the background)

Ghosts, they come and memories all repeat
Lift your hair while they change the hospital sheets
And I would never lie to you, no
I would never lie to you, no
I felt you long after we were through
When we were through

The plans I make still have you in them
'Cause you come swimming into view
And I'm hanging on your words like I always used to do
The words they use so lightly, I only feel for you
I only know because I
Carry you around, in the background

'Cause I felt you long after we were through

When you come swimming into view
And I'm hanging on your words like I always used to do (come swimming into view)
The words they use so lightly, I only feel for you (you come swimming into view)
I only know because I'm way
I'm way... in the background
I'm in the background
