  • Red leaves on the river
    Footprints in the sand
    Cold walk in December
    Warmin' up your hands
    Sun dress on the front steps
    Sun up by the lake
    Blanket down in the backyard
    Lying wide awake

    That's a memory I don't mess with
    The girl I was the best with
    The one I was obsessed with
    Girl, you just don't get it
    I'd fall right back with one slip
    Always leaves me helpless
    Don't hate me, I can't help it
    Gotta leave us where we left it
    You're a memory I don't mess with

    Moonlight on the back seat
    A breeze through the wires
    Springsteen on the speakers
    Girl, I'm on fire
    That's stuff I don't think about
    'Cause it still kills me now
    I still can't dance around

    That memory I don't mess with
    The girl I was the best with
    The one I was obsessed with
    Girl, you just don't get it
    I'd fall right back with one slip
    Always leaves me helpless
    Don't hate me, I can't help it
    Gotta leave us where we left it
    You're a memory I don't mess with

    Oh, it's good running into you like this
    But, girl, I'm close as I can get

    To a memory I don't mess with
    The girl I was the best with
    The one I was obsessed with
    Girl, you just don't get it
    I'd fall right back with one slip
    Always leaves me helpless
    Don't hate me, I can't help it
    Gotta leave us where we left it
    You're a memory I don't mess with
    Oh, mm, yeah

    Red leaves on the river
    Footprints in the sand
    Cold walk in December
    Warmin' up your hands
