(You Want To) Make a Memory
Hello again, it's you and me Kinda always like it used to be Sippin' wine, killing time Trying to solve life's mysteries How's your life, it's been a while? God it's good to see you smile I see you reaching for your keys Looking for a reason not to leave If you don't know if you should stay If you don't say what's on your mind Baby just breathe There's nowhere else tonight we should be You wanna make a memory I dug up this old photograph Look at all that hair we had It's bitter sweet to hear you laugh Your phone is ringin' I don't wanna ask If you go now I'll understand If you stay, hey, I've gotta plan You wanna make a memory? You wanna steal a piece of time? You can sing the melody to me And I can write a couple lines You wanna make a memory If you don't know if you should stay And you don't say what's on your mind Baby just breathe There's nowhere else tonight we should be (We should be) (We should be) You wanna make a memory? You wanna steal a piece of time? You can sing the melody to me And I can write a couple lines You wanna make a memory You wanna make a memory
