Bittersweet Memories

  • You turn me off at the push of a button
    And you pretend that I don't mean nothing
    I'm not a saint, that's easy to tell
    But guess what honey? you ain't no angel
    You like to scream use words as a weapon
    Well go ahead take your best shot woman
    I wanna leave you, it's easy to see
    But guess what honey it's not that easy

    We get so complicated (complicated)
    This finger's for our memories

    So rip my pictures from your wall
    Tear them down, and burn them all
    Light the fire and walk away
    There's nothing left to say, so
    Take the ashes from the floor
    Bury them to just make sure
    That nothing more is left of me
    Just bittersweet memories

    I wanna run and escape from your prison,
    But when I leave I feel something is missing.
    I'm not afraid that's easy to tell,
    This can't be heaven,
    It feels like I'm in hell.
    You're like a drug that I can't stop taking,
    I want more and I can't stop craving.
    I still want you it's easy to see,
    But guess what honey?
    You're not that good for me.

    We get so complicated (complicated),
    This finger's for our memories.

    So rip my pictures from your wall,
    Tear them down, and burn them all.
    Light the fire and walk away,
    There's nothing left to say, so,
    Take the ashes from the floor,
    Bury them to just make sure,
    That nothing more is left of me,
    Just bittersweet memories.

    Just bittersweet memories.

    We get so complicated (complicated),
    This finger's for our memories.

    We get so complicated.

    So rip my pictures from your wall,
    Tear them down, and burn them all.
    Light the fire and walk away,
    There's nothing left to say, so,
    Take the ashes from the floor,
    Bury them to just make sure,
    That nothing more is left of me,
    Just bittersweet memories.

    There's nothing left to say.
    There's nothing left to say. Writer/s: DON GILMORE, JASON JAMES, MICHAEL PAGET, MICHAEL THOMAS, MATTHEW TUCK
