A Distant Memory

A DISTANT MEMORY - Written by Carroll Bryant



You came unannounced
Prepared to take me down
And I … fell into your spell

You ran all around
So scared of what you found
And I … was pulled in oh, so well

The world was ours to own
But you left me all alone
And never in our history
Did you ever say you were sorry

Every now and then I might pretend
That somewhere in your heart
There’s a place for you and me

Every single day I watch it fade away
Until I’m just aloof enough to be
A distant memory

You came with the wind
Prepared to feed me sin
And I … opened up my mouth

You danced in my sights
Claiming all my nights
And I … couldn’t find my way out

The world was ours to play
The ways you did betray
And never in the life did you live
In a house where you could ever forgive

Every now and then I might pretend
That somewhere in your heart
There’s a place for you and me

Every single day I watch it fade away
Until I’m just aloof enough to be
A distant memory

The jaded words you used ... to kiss
Hit their target
You never miss the chance
To roll up all your sleeves
Then punch me in the face before you leave
The crazy way you sneak
Is the magic
You can’t believe the trance
Your lips did put on me
And never left a trace of anything

You came unannounced
Prepared to take me down
And I … fell into your spell

Into your hell

You never say you’re sorry

Every now and then I might pretend
That somewhere in your heart
There’s a place for you and me

Every single day I watch it fade away
Until I’m just aloof enough to be
A distant memory

And everyday it seems to me to be
A distant memory

And you never say you’re sorry
