sweet memory

I put my perfume all over

so when I walked in

you knew I was there

a fringed leather jacket on

red lips and back-combed hair

I wore my fuck me boots

so you could see me standing at the bar

pretend I didn't do it for you

that I only came for the guitars

 

then you put your arms round her

as you catch my eye

you have the audacity

to ask if I'm alright?

well baby I've been better

I wont inconvenience you tonight

I had my heart gift-wrapped for you

but it's a plight I'm not prepared to fight

 

chorus

 

I'll be your sweet memory

the one that drives you mad

I'll be your sweet memory

the best thing that you never had

a sweet memory 

the one that fills you with frustration...

I won't be anybody's obligation

I get home

I realise that I'm done

now there's a hole to fill

cause you always were the one

I wanted more

the one I adore

what is it for

you were never sure

in my loneliness a drink I'll pour

reminisce once more

before I shut the door

chorus 

maybe I'll be a sweet memory

the one that drives you mad

could I be a sweet memory

the best thing that you never had

a sweet memory 

the one that fills you with frustration...

I won't be anybody's obligation

time goes by as I ugly cry

mourning the loss of a love

who was never my guy

in floods I start to realise

that you will never see you 

as i see you 

through the tint in my eyes

but as the filter comes off

and the cracks start to show

I know we'll both be better 

if I leave you alone

this is the last song

that I'll write about you

I wish you all the best

and hope your dreams come true

Chorus

 

and hope that I'm a sweet memory

the one that drives you mad

could I be a sweet memory

the best thing that you never grasped

a sweet memory 

the one that fills you with frustration...

I won't be anybody's obligation
