Song Description

A man still loves the Melody that he let slip away. He regrets it and hears her in his heart.

Story Behind the Song

I played with a woman named Melody in a band. She bemoaned the fact that nobody had ever written a song for her. I couldn't believe that, especially with a name like Melody. So, this song came out of that conversation and is a montage of various thoughts and experiences.

Lyrics

Once upon a time we danced
when we heard our song
we'd dance slowly cheek to cheek
and sometimes sing along
But all that's a memory
now that she's gone
She's in Lufkin, Texas
And I'm on my own

Chorus-I can't get that Melody
out of my mind
without her there's no harmony
my heart beats out of time
I try to drink myself to sleep
you know I'll drink myself blind
before I ever get that Melody
out of my mind

It's winter here in Illinois
outside it's cold as hell
and maybe that's where I should be
for mistreating my Mel
I dance with other women
when I hear our song
but my arms still feel empty
it's where my Melody belongs

How could I have let her go?
It's all my fault I know
I'm not an evil man
Lord, I'm just weak
How I long to be with my Melody
dancing cheek to cheek

I'm staring up at a sunny sky
another dreary day
'cause Melody is in my heart
and still so far away
And all I have are mem'ries
now that she's gone
She's in Lufkin, Texas
and I'm all alone

I can't get that Melody
out of my mind
without her there's no harmony
my heart beats out of time
I try to drink myself to sleep
you know I'll drink myself blind
before I ever get that Melody
out of my mind

I try to drink myself to sleep
you know I'll drink myself blind
before I ever get that Melody
out of my mind

You know I'll never get
that Melody
out of my mind
