Pearl Jam Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town

I seem to recognize your face

Haunting, familiar, yet I can’t seem to place it

Cannot find the candle of thought to light your name

Lifetimes are catching up with me

All these changes taking place

I wish I’d seen the place

But no one’s ever taken me

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away

Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away

I swear I recognize your breath

Memories like fingerprints are slowly raising

Me you wouldn’t recall for I’m not my former

It’s hard when you’re stuck upon the shelf

I changed by not changing at all

Small town predicts my fate

Perhaps that’s what no one wants to see

I just wanna scream “Hello!”

My God it’s been so long

Never dreamed you’d return

But now here you are, and here I am

Hearts and thoughts they fade away

Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away

Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away

Hearts and thoughts they fade away

Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away

Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away

Hearts and thoughts they fade fade away
