Memory

It was only the scent of the perfume you used to wear on another,
But all I can think of is all that we used to share, oh how I’ve tried to forget

But now you’re here as if the clocks were lying all these years and I can wake in the night and not wonder what you are up to
But baby it’s been so long and whatever we used to have is gone

Coz we are just a memory
Of what was never meant to be
Baby I was so naive
Living life in make-believe
We were only seventeen
Acting out a movie scene
But now I know we’ll never be
More than just a memory

Now I’m pounding the pavement and taking the long way round to meet a lover
I thought I had dealt with the hard bit when you left town, I wouldn’t see you around

But out of the blue I might as well be walking arm in arm with you and taking shorter strides, coz you can’t keep up if I don’t,
But baby it’s been so long and whatever we used to have is gone

Coz we are just a memory
Of what was never meant to be
Baby I was so naive
Living life in make-believe
We were only seventeen
Acting out a movie scene
But now I know we’ll never be
More than just a memory

If I could I’d keep you out of mind all the time
And it should be easy now, but I still have to try
