Tiger Lily Love


Memory Lane


I'm stranded on memory lane

Guess walking down it just wasn't enough

Looking at how far I've come

Who'd have know it would've been this tough?




Who'd have seen the hurricane coming

That destroyed all of our plans?

Who knew lighting would strike our plane

Causing it to crash land?




Reality woke me up oh so cruelly

And it won't let me hit snooze on my alarm

And I can't go back to blissful ignorance

Because those days are long gone




As my memories over-flood the streets

They feel almost close enough to touch

And I reach out my hands to grasp them

Because memories just aren't enough




But memories is all that they are

And no matter how close they feel

I know they're as distant as the stars




So I find my way off memory lane

And I think it's best I don't go back




Because even though I want those memories to last

Maybe it's best I lock the gates to memory lane

And leave them where they belong


In the past

    Love this part:

    As my memories over-flood the streets
    They feel almost close enough to touch
    And I reach out my hands to grasp them
    Because memories just aren't enough

    Because it's the truth. (Report) Reply
