Used to be that I could see a reason to be happy cause I was free
But then, recently it seems Ive been lettin your memry get to me
Used to be that I could pretend that I wasn't really hurt back then
But then, recently it seems Ive been lettin your memry get to me
Cause Memries can be friends or they can take you to a place
That you never thought you'd be again
And take you to a place that you never ever thought that you would see again.
Memries can be friends or they can take you to a place
That you never thought you'd be again
And take you to a place that you never ever thought that you would see again.
Doesnt't't matter now who was wrong
The future is tomorrow cause the past is gone
And Im Findin that Im not as strong as I thought that I used to be
Cause recently it seems Ive been let-tin your memry geet to me.
