I try to recall what it was you said to me just then 
but this train keeps on rocking me back to sleep 
and I fear come tomorrow I won't even remember your name

I'd make myself remember 
Make myself recall 
but these promises and these vows I made you now 
seem to have no voice at all 
The color of the canyons 
When first it was said I love you 
But these colors and these canyons 
now all seem silly and small 
I don't understand at all 
how these colors in my memory just fade 
into such a pale shade of gray

and cold rails remind me of your cold feet 
and my eyes expect to see you behind every door 
but when I shut my eyes 
I can't even recall what it is that you wore 
My god was that only yesterday 
I can't even remember your face 
I feel so far away

I make myself remember 
Make myself recall 
but these promises and these vows I made you now 
seem to have no voice at all 
The color of the canyons 
When first it was said I love you 
But these colors and these canyons 
now all seem silly and small 
I don't understand at all 
how these colors in my memory just fade away 
into such a pale shade of gray

I say to myself My god I used to love him 
I wanted to share with him my womb and my world 
But now I stare at him as though through a glass wall 
I say I used to love him but now I feel nothing for him at all 
My god how could this be 
Won't you please explain this to me

Now sleep sings to me in a sweet and urgent voice 
And I fear that I have no choice but to forget these flowers 
these daisies you gave me, the offerings you made me 
the vows that we swore by, swearing we'd be together 
always and forever, the children we named and now we'll never have 
and I know I'm supposed to meet you 
I don't even think I'll remember your name tomorrow

I make myself remember 
Make myself recall 
but these promises and these vows I made you now 
seem to have no voice at all 
The color of the canyons 
When first it was said I love you 
But these colors and these canyons 
now all seem silly and small 
I don't understand at all 
how these colors in my memory just fade away 
into such a pale shade of gray
