Used to be that I could see
A reason to be happy 'cause I was free
But then recently it seems
I've been lettin' your mem'ry get to me

Used to be that I could pretend
That I wasn't really hurt back then
But then recently it seems
I've been lettin' your mem'ry get to me

'Cause mem'ries can be friends
Or they can take you to a place
The you never thought you'd be again
And take you to a place
That you never ever thought 
That you would see again

'Cause mem'ries can be friends
Or they can take you to a place
The you never thought you'd be again
And take you to a place 
That you never ever thought 
That you would see again

Doesn't matter now who was wrong
The future is tomorrow 'cause the past is gone
And I'm findin' that I'm not as strong
As I thought that I used to be
'Cause recently it seems
I've been lettin' your mem'ry get to me
