I've Got a Long Memory


You told me this. You told me that
and then forgot what you said.
But I don't forget the this and that.
I've got it all in my head.
And I can bring it back whenever I want
'Cause baby, I've got a long memory.

*** I remember you each time I breathe
and I never forget just how it feels
to be loved by you, I remember you.

You made me laugh. You made me cry
and made believe you were blind.
But I don't forget the laugh or cry.
I've got it all in my mind.
And I can bring it back whenever I want
'Cause baby, I've got a long memory.

REPEAT ***

You told me truths. You told me lies.
You nearly drove me insane.
But I don't forget the truths or lies.
I've got it stored in my brain.
And I can bring it back whenever I want.
'Cause baby, I've got a long memory.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
