    Ohh, old memories
    They don't go away, no
    They don't go

    Old memories, they don't go away
    They show up before you leave
    And disappear when you wish they'd stay
    No heart is immune, no secret is kept
    Yeah, they only get stronger with age
    Old memories, they don't go away

    Old love songs, they don't ever end
    Just when you think that you've moved on
    They remind you, you ain't over it
    They sneak in the dark, creep in your bed
    Playing over the loss in your head
    Old love songs, they don't ever end

    It's a problem, I'm telling you
    Makes you temperamental
    It takes all of the best of you
    You ain't gon' never let go

    Old photographs, never fade away
    They're just frozen there in time
    Locked in pretty picture frames
    The bridges we burn (yeah)
    The once happiness (yeah)
    It's a black and white that you can't change
    Old photographs never fade away

    It's a problem, I'm telling you (telling you)
    Make you temperamental (temperamental)
    It takes all of the best of you (the best of you)
    You ain't gon' never let go

    Look at me (look at me)
    Lost in yesterday (lost in yesterday)
    Thought that I was over you (over you)
    But you haunt me in every way
    My heart is with you (yeah)
    The secret is out (yeah)
    And it only gets stronger with age (only gets stronger with age)
    Old memories, of you and me
    They don't go away
