So every day I see you in some other face
They crack a smile, talk a while 
Try to take your place 
My memory serves me far too well

I just sit here on this mountain thinking to myself 
You're a fool boy
Why don't you go down
Find somebody 
Find somebody else
My memory serves me far too well

It's not as though we just broke up
It's not as though it was yesterday, yeah
But something I just can't explain  Something in me needs this pain
I know I'll never see your face again 

C'mon now
I've got to be strong now

Now everybody's talking about this new decade 
Like you say the magic numbers
Then just say goodbye to the stupid mistakes you made
Oh my memory serves me far too well

Don't you know that
The years will come and go
Some of us will change our lives 
Some of us still have nothing to show
Nothing, baby (nothing, baby)
But memories (but memories)

And if these wounds
They are self-inflicted
I don't really know
How my poor heart could have protected me
But if I have to carry this pain
If you will not share the blame 
I deserve to see your face again 

C'mon now
You don't have to be so strong now
Come back, come back, come back, come back
Come back, come back, come back, come back

Oh, come back to me darling 
I will make it worth your while 
Come back to your baby
I miss your kiss
I miss your smile  Seems to me the peace I search to find
Ain't going to be mine until you say you will
Don't you keep me waiting for that day
I know, I know, I know you hear these words that I say

I know, I know, I know 
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want, oh
