Hey folks! Been a while.
I think this one is pretty decent, but probably could use a few tweaks. Curious to hear what you all think. Thanks!

ďThe Memory Lingers OnĒ

I swam around all last night in your words in my bed
But it wasnít so much your words as it was what they said
And you know how the night goes, you know how it plays with your head
But the morning didnít bring the light, it brought more night, instead

Because the memory lingered on
Feels like itís going on forever
And the pain that comes along
I guess thatís how itís gonna be

So while the dayís become the nighttime, the night is still the night
And I keep swimming through the darkness and bumping into things that bite
And theyíre tearing at me, itís an on-going terminal fight
Iíve been getting used to the pain, itís just a part of my life

Because the memory lingers on
It just goes on and on forever
And the pain that comes along
I guess thatís how itís gonna be

(instrumental interlude)

BRIDGE:
Leaving a bad taste in my mouth
Leaving a pain in my mind
Leaving a hole in me
But never leaving
Leaving a sense of what Iíve lost
Leaving a sense of just whatís gone
Leaving me without any sense
But never leaving
But never leaving
But never leavingÖ

Because the memory lingers on
It just goes on and on forever
And the pain that comes along
I guess thatís how itís gonna be
Yes the memory lingers on
It just goes on and on forever
And the pain that comes along
I guess thatís how itís gonna be
I guess thatís how itís gonna beÖ I guess thatís how itís gonna beÖ

I've learned to never tell folks what a song is "about." Because that closes the door to letting people make their own interpretations and their own connections.
I know what it means to me. What does it seem to be about to you? That's what it's about.

I see the singer as someone who no longer is with his wife/girlfriend/love
and now she has left, and he is unable to move on because thoughts of her keep playing in his mind and he cant forget her no matter how hard he tries.

I like the song

I'm not sure about the first two lines. I'm not sure if this is better, but it might be a start.


thoughts of you overflow in my head, the things you did, the words you said
they swamp and drown me as I lie in this cold and empty bed

feel free to take or leave or modify.


Staying 6 feet away is better than being 6 feet under.
