Jessica - Jewel

He used to walk with Jessica
Down to the diner
They'd sit and talk for hours
About nothin' in particular
Just bullsh_t the time away
That's what she used to say
She'd wrinkle her nose when she said it
That's how you know she meant it

Jessica

Jessica

She'd call him at nine a.m.
To see how sleep had been treatin' him
And though they were never lovers
They were soulmates under cover

They'd drink beer and sit around
Or just sit still and not make a sound
And he would shudder to think
Of what life would be like
Without his best friend -slash- shrink

Jessica

Bridge:
She's an angel at his table
A force to feel but not to see
Blinded by her absence
Haunted by her memory
If only you were able to see the angel at your table

He got a phone call
From her mother
He said, "Yeah, right stop kidding around."
He felt his heart fall to the ground
Since then everyday
Seems to feel like winter
Everything is colorless
As he can't see it with her

Jessica

Jessica

He could easily have been with her
Driving home in the car
It was her birthday
It's sick how things work out that way
Now at night when he sleeps
A watch over him she keeps
She whispers in his ear
For his heart to hear

Jessica

Jessica

It's amazing how a soul can leave
Suddenly from a body
Rendering it useless
And stealing its desire to breathe
One moment here then gone
With no forwarding address
Love no longer has a house
Residence in flesh
Religion without a temple
No place to take your worship to
No God for the eyes to see
No fruit to lay at the feet
of Jessica

Jessica

If only you were able to see
The angel at your table
Then you'd understand why
You never got to say goodbye
To Jessica
There's no such word as goodbye

For Jessica

She's always standing by
