Song Description

She's gone. He told her to take the memories, but he knows she didn't because he thinks of her all the time. He either wants the relationship to truly be at an end (not really) or he wants the memories to leave him alone.

Story Behind the Song

No back story. Just pure craft.


Well, I caught your mem'ry hangin' around my heart
When you promised you'd take it with you should we ever part
When you left you said you were leavin' for good, but whose good can that be?
Because all your goodbyes and your good intentions haven't been very good for me
So if you'd take your mem'ry and keep it away
I wouldn't have to bring it back to mind each day
'Cause when I do my heart just breaks... all over again

Now it's time to put your mem'ry under lock and key
And keep it from comin' around here botherin' me
It's been a bad influence on my broken heart since you went away
And I'm afraid my heart might just fall apart thinkin' of you every day
If I could find a way to remember you without the mem'ry of the love we knew
Then my heart would not have to break... all over again

When love is shared and souls are bared
You can't say that love never was
It doesn't work to pretend that no one ever cared


If I find your mem'ry hangin' around my door
It might be, this time, somethin' that I can't ignore
Now I've told you time and time again, keep all your mem'ries to yourself
But they always seem to show up when I'm trying to be with somebody else
If you insist on lettin' your mem'ries stray, then I insist you both come back to stay
So we can find the love we lost... all over again

All over again, all over again
