I've Got Memories

July 6, 2011

You knocked some teeth out
when you hit me
and I wound up on the floor
You said you cared
You said you loved me
but I guess you don't anymore

Your imperfections
used to arouse my sympathy
But my affections
disappeared
when you took your pain out on me

CHORUS:
I've got memories
of blood and tears
to keep me away from you
All I've got now are
bruises and scars
to remind me that we're through
You can plead and say you're sorry
but I've got memories

You cut my heart out
when you told me
all those stories and white lies
You forced out
You grabbed me in
Kissed me then gave me a black eye

Your hard abuse
showed your mean personality
And it's no more use
with "Sorries"
I won't accept your apologies

CHORUS:
I've got memories
of blood and tears
to keep me away from you
All I've got now are
bruises and scars
to remind me that we're through
And you can crawl back on your knees
but I've got memories


The author's comments:
I've never been in an abusive relationship, but I wanted to write a song for all the people who have. It's better to walk away and leave the pain behind.
