Hello again, it's you and me
Kinda always like it used to be
Sippin' wine, killing time
Trying to solve life's mysteries

How's your life, it's been a while
God it's good to see you smile
I see you reaching for your keys
Looking for a reason not to leave

If you don't know if you should stay
If you don't say what's on your mind
Baby just breathe
There's nowhere else tonight we should be

You wanna make a memory?

I dug up this old photograph
Look at all that hair we had.
It's bittersweet to hear you laugh
Your phone is ringing I don't wanna ask

If you go now, I'll understand
If you stay, hey, I've got a plan
We're gonna make a memory
You wanna steal a piece of time
You can sing the melody to me
And I can write a couple of lines

You wanna make a memory?

If you don't know if you should stay
And you don't say what's on your mind
Baby just breathe
There's nowhere else tonight we should be
We Should be

You wanna make a memory
You wanna steal a piece of time
You can sing the melody to me
And I can write a couple of lines

You wanna make a memory? (x2)

    This song is about 2 former lovers that have run into each other after years and she is trying to decide if she should stay or not but he wants her to because he wants to for one night bring back what used to be and make a new memory. Together for that one night they'll write their own love song.

    I find the song so sad. How can two lovers be apart when they know they need to be together? Sacrifice, is that it? Damn!

    The song is saying basicly if your going to be in a relationship make enough memories to the point where if the relationship ends there will be memories that remind your ex of you and if you want them back they will always come back just because of a memory!
