KEEP YOUR MEMORIES

At first my sweet Girl tried to hide it
Pretend to me that he did not exist
But his influence on her was heavy
A tease so strong she couldn’t resist

And as our lifelong magic faded
His hold just grew more intense
God knows I pleaded and objected
But my very best was no defense

He had a dark, irresistible whisper
And a strong pull that he called fate
I protested.. Dude, she’s taken!
He smiled and said, I’m not too late

But she promised never to leave me
This girl and me we’re true soulmates
He said I’ll let you keep your memories
But she’s now mine.. and I can’t wait

Completely shocked and overcome
Can’t speak a word or even breathe
He stole my girl and all my future
Flirtatious lies... she finally believed

Oh what a villain.. yet so compelling
He promised peace to set her free
And as she sipped his blinding poison 
She lost all hope of what could be

Her last words to me weren’t spoken
Her choice.. in writing, now was clear
Heartbroken.. Love’s dreams defeated
I begged no... but Death was here!

~Lyric Man

Note: This is a tragic story of Death stealing a perfect love. First he took the child. Then the mind of the child’s mother and eventually he took her heart.. leaving this Boy so lost. Can’t breathe.. drowning in the memories!

"Take your records, take your freedom, keep your memories I don't need them" your well written song reminded me of Keith Urban's song, that a good sign!

I am unable to find the right words. I will just say: My heart feels yours so deeply, through these emotions shared. ~ Brandy

Very well put. Every break up is different but you have captured the emotional common thread that runs through. Takes me back to a not so good place. Well written

G'day Dave … this set of lyrics that you've written is a so often case of reality that is either accepted or brooded on and then has horrible consequences - thank you Dave - Lindsay
