Verse 1

Memories, they have this funny way

Of being triggered by the most trivial things.

And once I start walking down that road,

I'm completely defeated by my feelings.

Know it's for the best

Don't gift me more memories

To store in my chest.

Chorus

I can't keep gathering pebbles.

Cause you and I both know it well,

Someday,

I'd have to throw it away,

Let you go.

You've been

Gone for long, I'm staring at

Your shadow.

Verse 2

I'm still in love with what we once had.

Pictures, wrist band, even the chocolate wrapper.

I'm a hopeless fool, as you can see.

I still hold them close, when I should keep them far.

Know it's for my good.

You already left too much.

Now stop, like you should.

Chorus

I can't keep gathering pebbles.

Cause you and I both know it well,

Someday,

I'd have to throw it away,

Let you go.

You've been

Gone for long, I'm staring at

Your shadow.

Bridge

And I'm gathering pebbles.

But time's not turning tables.

There's still a sacred drawer in my heart, too full of you.

But you've forgotten me so long ago, you're brand new.

And I, I…

Chorus

I can't keep gathering pebbles.

Cause you and I both know it well,

Someday,

I'd have to throw it away,

Let you go.

You've been

Gone for long, I'm staring at

Your shadow.
