Song Description

Sparse piano ballad on the passing of a loved one, remembering a deep mutual affection often unspoken but always understood. From the album 'Pop Philosophy'. Written, performed and produced by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

So you didn't get to see me succeed
And you didn't have to see me fail either
Couldn't settle on a creed to believe
But you've finally been given the answers

Oh, you seem so long gone
So long gone so soon
And all that's been lost
Was never pointed to

But that stuff was hanging in the air
We hardly made a mention
But we knew that it was there
Such love was hanging in the air
It rarely found expression
But the trace was everywhere

And I didn't get to lay it on you
With the clearing of debts on the deathbed
Couldn't offer you my fond gratitude
In the window that I had expected

Oh, but why buck a trend
We parted as we lived
With those words unsaid
But still somehow distinct

That stuff was hanging in the air
We hardly made a mention
But we knew that it was there
Such love was hanging in the air
It rarely drew attention
But the trace was everywhere

Of course there is an afterlife
Why didn't I believe it?
Because you made a mark on life
That lives on when you leave it

Oh, people pay respects, so sadly, so sincere
Oh, and they reach for words
We never had to hear

Yeah that stuff was hanging in the air
We hardly made a mention
But we knew that it was there
Such love was hanging in the air
We didn't shout about it
But I knew you knew we cared
That stuff was hanging in the air
And that's some consolation
For an ending that unfair
Such love left hanging in the air
Hanging in the air
