Fill the Spaces

from The Kitchen Sink by Jeff Campbell

lyrics

Holding up the sky and stealing looks
Baby look at you, you're a monument.
Welcome to the world little one, start taking in.

If right about the time you can feel it cook,
You're skipping to the end of all your books
How will you know how you made all your friends?

You can always leave the places
And throw away the things
Forget about the faces
That don't mean anything
But you'll always be one of us.
And we'll always give you all our love.
But don't forget to fill the spaces.

Ever the climb but the dealing's good
Nobody’ll ever think you would.
Least of all you, but here we are today.
Cradle all the ones you know you should.   
Never know when they'll be gone for good
A moment's a memory almost right away.

Never mind the angels all around  
They're there to catch you, when you fall down
And fall down, you will. But you can't grow without.

Move along and do so as you would.
Your soul is your map so feed it good.
It's the only one you got so don't give it away
