I tried to save myself before I started breaking today.
I put in the disc that's rescued me a few times before
And as the CD skipped, my heart began to slip.
Soon enough the beats were dropping
And my mind was taken back
To bittersweet memories that
I'm not sure I want to remember.
It pulls back the words you used to speak
That I'll never hear again.
The tracks changed as quickly
As my thoughts jumped.
My mind ached with visions
Of seeing your face – maybe just one more time.
And that just made my heart sore,
Because I know that won't be happening.
I just listened to your songs tonight
And the lyrics screamed your name.
