this song moves me to tears so thank-you for writing about itI think you have misheard the lyric yes the verse is about a girl leaving, but the chorus goes "Love is all that we keepIn the box that you’re burnt inWhen you lay down to sleep"similar sentiment to Philip Larkin's "almost-instinct almost true: What will survive of us is love."
