Verse 1

It's been over eight months now since you left,

And I haven't worn this shirt since that day,

When you said we're done, and I barely slept,

Dressed in this shirt, while the tears built a bay.

Pre chorus

And now I've taken it out of the shelf again,

This shirt that was last drenched in my rivers of pain.

Chorus

This shirt, like the past, will keep me warm,

On lonely cold winter nights.

And I can discard it when I want,

Makes me think I'll be alright.

Yes I'll be alright, with you safe in my heart,

It's time to live again, this shirt is the start.

Verse 2

Red and grey stripes, covering up my sleeves,

I feel your touch linger on the fabric.

And I walk the streets covered in dead leaves,

I'll see new ones on the trees at spring's peak.

Pre chorus

And I know I too have to start blooming again,

This shirt is the first step, I'm letting go of pain.

Chorus

This shirt, like the past, will keep me warm,

On lonely cold winter nights.

And I can discard it when I want,

Makes me think I'll be alright.

Yes I'll be alright, with you safe in my heart,

It's time to live again, this shirt is the start.

Bridges

Those memories, good and bad,

Can't bring me down,

Can't make me sad.

You're the best I ever had,

Can't bring me down,

Can't make me sad.

Chorus

This shirt, like the past, will keep me warm,

On lonely cold winter nights.

And I can discard it when I want,

Makes me think I'll be alright.

Yes I'll be alright, with you safe in my heart,

It's time to live again, this shirt is the start.

Outro

Yes I'll be alright, with you safe in my heart,

It's time to live again, this shirt is the start.
