Read About Memory

Woods, Donovan

Band/Artist: Woods, Donovan

Album: Both Ways

I remember drivin' and the smell of rain
And your hands out the window flyin' like a plane
I remember smilin' and starin' at your face
Like it would disappear if I blinked or looked away
Yeah
Old hickory and your sick dress
Won't let me go just yet

I remember sittin' on your folks' pull-out couch
You kept sayin' it was cold, I was starin' at your mouth
And the more I read about memory the less I pay it mind
It's just a story that we tell ourselves, or at most, a lullaby
Yeah
Your eyes and the TV glow
They will not let me go

And I know we had our reasons why
But I cannot hold them in my mind
Yeah I know we had our reasons why
Instead I

I remember watchin' you cross the room
I knew all your friends, I did not know you
And when you said your name, I felt vaguely sick
And the whole world swum beneath us, I loved you so quick
Yeah
You laughed and turned your head
I can't get free of it

And I know we had our reasons why
But I cannot hold them in my mind
Yeah I know we had some real bad times
But I cannot hold them in my mind

In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
