People say she's only in my head
Gonna take time, but I'll forget
Say I need to get on with my life
What they don't realize

It's when you're dialin' six numbers just to hang up the phone
Drivin' 'cross town just to see if she's home
Wakin' a friend in the dead of the night
Just to hear him say it'll be alright
When you're findin' things to do to not fall asleep
'Cause you know she'll be there in your dreams
That's when she's more than a memory

Took a match to everything she ever wrote
Watched every word go up in smoke
Tore all her pictures off the wall
That ain't helpin' me at all

'Cause when you're talkin' out loud to nothin' but air
You look like hell, and you just don't care
You're drinkin' more than you ever drank
And sinkin' down lower than you ever sank
When you find yourself fallin' on your knees
Shakin' your fist, beggin' please
That's when she's more than a memory

She's more
She's more

People say she's only in my head
Gonna take time, but I'll forget

But when she's in every minute of every day
Every thought I think, every breath I take
When she's everywhere, when she's everything
She's more than a memory

    Garth brooks kind of messed this song up by adding his own lyrics. Brice's is better, but both versions are still good.
