Memories Undead

i hear a voice say move on
but my feet won't move along
i can barly breath
there's something i can't leave
behind
there's a sign
telling me what to do
but i can't leave you
you're stuck in my head
memories are undead
unable to be erased
they'll leave a trace
for eternity
left with uncertainty
why they won't leave, i don't know
the question is alone
lost in the past
growing older so fast
your name is signed
engraved in my mind
to leave you is my endeavor
but it seems you'll stay with me forever
get out of my head!
i scream wht needs to be said
this is my last chance to forget
to leave behind all my regrets
last chance, last stand
lets hope that i land
or i'll be stuck with you
like glue
you'll remind me everyday
it's over i'll hear you say
you'll just stay with me somehow
if i don't leave you right now
no! i scream no! you can't stay with me
just leave, just leave me be
i point to the door
i drop to the floor
i'm stuttering
butterflies are fluttering
i remember everything you said
i push it right out of my head
i'm alone
my hearts stone
i hear a voice say it's done
i stand to my feet and run
straight for you
what else am i to do?
i need you! without you i would die
i start to cry
when i find that your not there
i look around, not anywhere
i stop and i remember
you left me last September
it's October of the next year
there goes another tear
slide right down my cheek
i'm unable to speak
you...only consist of thoughts in my head
you...are those memories undead
