Verse
I'm not sleeping too well at night
The room is cold as ice
shadows keep drifting by
the sound of lonely cries
It's a haunting memory

Pre-chorus
There's sadness within my heart
my minds a total blur
I'm seeing her everywhere

Chorus
It's a haunting memory
Why can't it just let me be
I lost her, it's plain to see
She's just a haunting memory
that keeps glaring back at me
I guess I'll never be free
from this haunting memory

Verse
Can't go to places we used to go
a dark cloud follows me in
A bitter emptiness in the air
like the presence of despair
It stalks me to no end

Chorus
It's a haunting memory
Why can't it just let me be
I lost her, it's plain to see
She's just a haunting memory
that keeps glaring back at me
I guess I'll never be free
from this haunting memory

Verse
You might be a thousand miles away
but you're still in every room
every corner and down the hall
It's got me climbing the walls
My heart is forever doomed

Bridge
I'm trying to move on, but going nowhere fast
A condemned man locked in chains of the past

Pre-chorus
There's a sadness within my heart
my mind is a total blur
I'm seeing her everywhere

Chorus
It's a haunting memory
Why can't it just let me be
I lost her, it's plain to see
She's just a haunting memory
that keeps glaring back at me
I guess I'll never be free
from this haunting memory

A Haunting Memory

Verse
You look to me in the doorway
pretty flowers in my hand
My face shows disappointment
lost for words is what I am

Verse
Wasted time at the grocery
in the greeting card aisle
Sifted through all that they had
just left with an empty smile

Chorus
There's just no words to describe what I'm feeling
There's just no words to explain what's in my heart
What we share is so much more than a tingle or a touch
When I say "I love you", it just doesn't seem enough

There's just no words to describe what I'm feeling
There's just no words to explain what's in my heart
What we share everyday is so strong and true
I'd give you so much more
but I love you is the best that I can do

Verse
As you greet me with a soft
warm kiss on the lips
Here I stand gifts in hand
somehow it doesn't seem to fit

Verse
Then you look me in the eye
words so sweet to hear
You say,"honey I love you"
I can almost see a tear

Chorus
There's just no words to describe what I'm feeling
There's just no words to explain what's in my heart
What we share is so much more than a tingle or a touch
When I say "I love you", it just doesn't seem enough

There's just no words to describe what I'm feeling
There's just no words to explain what's in my heart
What we share everyday is so strong and true
I'd give you so much more
but I love you is the best that I can do

Verse
With the flowers placed in water
we share the frustration of the day
We laugh at each others stories
connected in so many ways

Bridge
I don't want to take it for granted
don't want to ever forget
I'm so happy when we're together
It's the best that this life gets

Chorus
There's just no words to describe what I'm feeling
There's just no words to explain what's in my heart
What we share is so much more than a tingle or a touch
When I say "I love you", it just doesn't seem enough

There's just no words to describe what I'm feeling
There's just no words to explain what's in my heart
What we share everyday is so strong and true
I'd give you so much more
but I love you is the best that I can do

I Love You is the Best That I Can Do

Verse
A two heart pile up on a street called regret
It all turned sad, good love went bad
Made me stop and wonder why we even met

Chorus
My trip to paradise detoured right
stranded alone in the middle of the night
love got hijacked to a nowhere road
dropped me off where it's mean and cold
The smooth road turned to dirt
now, it's a long way back from hurt

Verse
We got off track, didn't even see the signs
Good feeling is gone, it all went wrong
Moved ahead but my heart stayed behind

Verse
My sunshine girl gave me nothing but rain
Heartache is real, hate how it feels
Instead of endless joy it brought be endless pain

Chorus
My trip to paradise detoured right
stranded alone in the middle of the night
love got hijacked to a nowhere road
dropped me off where it's mean and cold
The smooth road turned to dirt
now, it's a long way back from hurt

Verse
On a dead-end street we made a final run
Doomed from the start, it fell apart
No hope for us, the damage is already done

Bridge
Trust was trampled. dreams were thrown away
Love was sampled, now we have to pay
because it's a long way back from hurt

Chorus
My trip to paradise detoured right
stranded alone in the middle of the night
love got hijacked to a nowhere road
dropped me off where it's mean and cold

It's A Long Way Back From Hurt

Intro (spoken)
I took an inventory of my life through the years
So many good times, but just as many tears
Sure, I've got regrets, everybody does
That's just the way it is, you take the bad with the good

Verse
I regret being rebellious and putting momma through hell
I regret being rowdy and those lonely nights in jail
I regret not being a better friend to those in need
I regret making promises, that I just didn't keep

Chorus
I've got a list of memories, some good and some bad
A list of all the best friends that I've ever had
A list of hard luck stories that would make you cry
A list of places I'd like to see before I die
I've got a list of faults that I've tried to pur-fect
I've got my biggest list, my list of regrets

Verse
I regret wrecking that old chevy, I used to love to drive
I regret not talking more to my dad, when he was alive
I regret all those years wasted in an alcohol haze
I regret being hard headed and set in my ways

Chorus
I've got a list of memories, some good and some bad
A list of all the best friends that I've ever had
A list of hard luck stories that would make you cry
A list of places I'd like to see before I die
I've got a list of faults that I've tried to pur-fect
I've got my biggest list, my list of regrets

Bridge
It's a list we all have in the back of our minds
of troubled times in life that we've left behind
It's all a part of our past but never really that far
It's the choices we make, that shapes who we are

Chorus
I've got a list of memories, some good and some bad
A list of all the best friends that I've ever had
A list of hard luck stories that would make you cry
A list of places I'd like to see before I die
I've got a list of faults that I've tried to pur-fect
I've got my biggest list, my list of regrets

Outro (spoken
The road only goes one way, straight ahead
There's no do overs, but if there were.....

Our Love Stands Alone

Verse:
Birthday and Christmas gifts
A night gown that you left behind
The emails that you sent me
I've read them all a thousand times

Our week together at the beach
nights at the cabin by the stream
all the times I held you
and we shared our biggest dreams

Chorus:
I remember your smile
the way I used to make you laugh
I've got the cards you gave me
and all the photographs
It's all that I have left
I don't know what else to do
I just keep holding on to these memories of you

Verse:
My favorite shirt you bought me
the necklace that I still wear
how we used to talk for hours
our souls we would bare

The roads we traveled together
talking about childhood things
The first time I said "I love you"
will you wear this golden ring

Bridge:
I can still hear the sound of your voice
your face I see so clear
These memories I hold on to
how I wish that you were here

I know that I must let go
maybe someday I will
But for now, these memories i hold on to
as if time stands still

Chorus:
I remember your smile
the way I used to make you laugh
I've got the cards you gave me
and all the photographs
It's all that I have left
I don't know what else to do
I just keep holding on to these memories of you

Memories of You

Verse
Under the sun, here before God
No one can touch, our solemn vow
With a love as great as it can be
I give it all to you, right here and now

Chorus
Let it be known, forever more
this moment in time
as we pledge our hearts
From this day on, it stands alone
My love for you strong and true
from this day on, our love stands alone

Verse
We hold our faith, here in our hearts
Together in love, that's all we need
What a glorious life the future will bring
The past is done, today's for you and me

Chorus
Let it be known, forever more
this moment in time
as we pledge our hearts
From this day on, it stands alone
My love for you strong and true
from this day on, our love stands alone

Verse
Nothing can change, the feelings we share
The joy in life, that everyone seeks
Ours to cherish to the end of time
As honest as any words, could ever speak

Bridge
I shout from the mountain top of love
it echoes all across the world
through the streams of life and far beyond
My love for you will be here
when everything else is gone

Chorus
Let it be known, forever more
this moment in time
as we pledge our hearts
From this day on, it stands alone
My love for you strong and true
from this day on, our love stands alone

Bio

Winner 2019 Songbay Lyric Writing contest. Featured in December 2019 issue of Write Away Magazine. I've always been creative and have been writing lyrics for many years. What's on Songbay is only a small sample of my work. My lyrics cover lots of different musical taste. I honestly feel that I can write whatever you want. Often, I get a a word or two as an idea and I can write a lyric. I'd be interested in sharing some of my lyrics for collaboration or for sell.
