All That Never Happens

This song is by 10,000 Maniacs and appears on the album Love Among the Ruins (1997).

She walks alone on the brick lane
The breeze is blowing
A year had changed her forever
Just like her gray home

He used to live so close here
We'd look for places I can't remember
The world was safe when she knew him
She tried to hold him, hold on forever

For all that never happens
And all that never will be
A candle burning for the love we seldom keep

The earth was raw in her fingers
She overturned it
Considered planting some flowers
They wouldn't last long, no one to tend them

It's funny how these things go
You were the answer to all the questions
The memories made her weary
She shuddered slowly, she didn't want to

As a distant summer he began to whisper
And threw a smile her way
She looked into the glass
Liquid surface showing that they were melding
Together present past

So where can I go from here
The color fading, he didn't answer
She felt him slip from her vision
She tried to hold him, hold on forever
So close forever, in a silent frozen sleep
