Can't Forget - A

I try to hold on, but it keeps slipping through
It's drifting out of reach now; I don’t know what to do
My memory's fading, everything I ever knew
Every moment I have ever shared with you

I try to remember your face down to the smallest detail
I try and try in vain as time after time I fail
My memories are fading, everything I ever knew
But I try to deny it, claim it as untrue

Your laugh no longer is clear in my memories as it once has been
But still I search frantically, but not knowing where to begin
I want to remember, oh God, I can't forget
But its happening already, to my deepest regret

I debate with myself day and night
Over the color of your eyes in the morning light
I argue and search and cry and scream
Swearing and hoping that this is all a dream

How can my memory be fading so fast
Why can't I hold on to it? Why wont it last?
Little by little, I lose fragments of my memory of our past

I try to deny it, claim it as untrue
My memories are fading, everything I ever knew
Losing everything, everything I remember of you
