lyrics

Memory Lyrics:

She'll wash her troubles with the dishes
She dances with the drapes
She finds comfort in her computer
her piano is her playmate

And when Loneliness sneaks in
with his cousin Fear
she says "No no you don't belong, you don't belong here
I got rid of you last year.

I don't need a memory
I need something to hold
and I choose you, I choose you
so won't you come back home,
which is wherever I roam."

She writes him letters in her sleep
He keeps them in a box
With every closing line
there was something that he lost.

Oh to wake up to the sunny sky
and remember you exist
she sings “today’s the day
I remember how you kiss.
I remember how you kiss.

So I don't need a memory
I need something to hold
and I choose you, I choose you
So won't you come back home,

Some moments I can’t breath
What am I to do with that?
Sit here and wait to sing,
Hey la, my boyfriend’s back? Hey la, my boyfriend’s back.

Of all the things that you have seen,
will you let them go, be all you can be?
I never thought I’d be this strong
I love you so this can’t be wrong
This can’t be wrong.

And I don't need a memory
I need something to hold
And I don’t need I don’t need
I don’t need I don’t need just a memory
I need to hold you
and I choose you. I choose you
so won’t you come back home?
Won’t you come back home?
Won’t you come back home?
