“The Background”
Artist: Third Eye Blind
Albums: 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,
'Cause I don't see you anymore,
Since the hospital,
But the plans I make
Still have you in them,
Then 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

Words they come
And memories all repeat,
I lift your head 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,
We were through
And 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 cause I carry you around
In the background
Cause I felt you long after we were through,
Then you come swimming into view,
And I'm hanging on your words
Like I always used to do,
The words they use so lightly,

Way back down...
I'm in the background
