More Than a Memory [*]
by Lee Brice



People say she's only in my head
Gonna take time but I'll forget
Say I need to get on with my life
What they don't realize is when

You're dialing six numbers just to hang up the phone
Driving across town just to see if she's home
Waking a friend in the dead of the night
Just to hear him say it'll be alright

When you're finding things to do not to fall asleep
'Cause you know she will be there in your dreams
That's when she's more than a memory

Took a match to everything she ever wrote
Watched every word go up in smoke
Tore all her pictures off the wall
That ain't helping me at all

'Cause when you're talking out loud to nothing but air
You look like hell and you just don't care
You're drinking more than you ever drank
And sinking down lower than you've ever sank

Then you find yourself falling on your knees
Shaking your fist, begging please
That's when she's more than a memory
Yeah, woho, hmm, she's more, she's more

People say she's only in my head
Going to time but I'll forget

But when she's in every minute of everyday
Every thought I think, every breath I take
She's everywhere and she's everything
She's more than a memory
