A Memory Away

Yesterday’s goodbyes
Are tomorrow’s fading memories
The bright reflection in your eyes
Slowly turns to gray
All the laughter and love we shared
Fed the fire in my soul
Now the flame is just an ember
That will never go away

I turn the light out in the hall
Then I cry myself to sleep
I pulled your picture from the wall
I can’t pull it from my mind
You’d think I’d get over you
Chase your ghost out of my mind
My heart would free my from this prison
Leave your memory behind

Empty nights, and empty glasses
Won’t drown out my tears
Aged like wine, time slowly passes
Days turn into years
But when the night falls around me
Until the dawning of the day
When the stars are out, and the moon is high
You’re just a memory away

Morning comes, another try
To get on with my life again
One more time I’ll say goodbye
And watch you fade in gloom
I keep hoping that in time I’ll heal
Come in out of the rain
But then I turn around, you’re here with me
Back in my empty arms again

Empty nights, and empty glasses
Won’t drown out my tears
Aged like wine, time slowly passes
Days turn into years
But when the night falls around me
Until the dawning of the day
When the stars are out, and the moon is high
You’re just a memory away
