lyrics

What'll you miss when your kids turn into people?
What'll you miss when people leave only dust?
What'll you miss, oh will you miss me
When the people that you love all have gone?

What'll you do when the bedrooms all are empty
But the eaves are even fuller than before?
What'll you do with all those boxes
When the people who owned them all have gone?

It's your grandma's china pattern, your uncle's crown of thorns
It's the dress your mother wore when she died of a broken heart
It's the piles of broken bottles, the old dance cards, the older photographs
It's the wondering why you're the one that's last

What did you miss when your kids turned into people?
What do you miss now people've left only dust?
What do you miss, oh do you miss me?
Now the people that you love all have gone
