I chose to dedicate my first songwriting effort to my grandfather who passed away in 2014. It's about how complex my reaction was to his passing, but regardless of how distant we were with each other, I will still honor his memory.

lyrics

"Honor Your Memory" by Alex Greif

VERSE 1:
Miss you, though
I never really knew you
Let’s go back
and do it all again (all again)

I wouldn’t take offense,
brush it off, no defense
focus on
the times when we would laugh (we would laugh)

PRE-CHORUS:
I don’t know why I can’t feel my heart
a pulse of novocain (pulse of novocain)
too much time apart
i could’ve called should’ve seen you but it’s too late

CHORUS:
All our mistakes (I was just steps away, now you’re one breath away)
You I forgave (No need for words to say, I’m turning back the page)
Though my emotions feel fake (No shedding tears for me, but I wish you could see)
That I’ll Honor Your Memory

VERSE 2:
like Poe, Van Gogh, Thoreau
How could the world have known
The beautiful mark you’d leave on history

Recovering from the blast
Harder than when we crashed
Knowing your love is still a mystery

PRE-CHORUS:
I don’t know why I can’t feel my heart
a pulse of novocain (novocain)
too much time apart
i could’ve called should’ve seen you but it’s too late

CHORUS:
All our mistakes (I was just steps away, now you’re one breath away)
You I forgave (No need for words to say, I’m turning back the page)
Though my emotions feel fake (No shedding tears for me, but I wish you could see)
That I’ll Honor Your Memory

BRIDGE:
I’m at a loss for words
I try to speak
you’re more alive (living in the afterlife)

I’m losing sleep
can’t close my eyes
you’re on my mind (living in the afterlife)

(ooh woah ooh woah ooh woah ooh)
it’s bittersweet
there’s a missing piece
but I still feel complete (living in the afterlife)

(ooh woah ooh woah ooh woah ooh)
and I’ll still carry on
your legacy
of being more alive (living in the afterlife)

(I will still honor you and I will still honor you)
I will honor you!

CHORUS:
All our mistakes (I was just steps away, now you’re one breath away)
You I forgave (I forgive you, oh I forgive you)
(No need for words to say, I’m turning back the page)
Though my emotions feel fake (All my emotions, all my emotions)
(No shedding tears for me, but I wish you could see)
That I’ll Honor Your Memory (I’ll honor you, I’ll honor you)

(yeah, yeah, yeah!)
