"Dive For Your Memory" as written by Robert Derwent Garth Forster and Grant William Mclennan....
If the cliffs were any closer
If the water wasn't so bad
I'd dive for your memory
On the rocks and the sand

I'd dive for you
Like a bird I'd descend
Deep down I'm lonely
And I miss my friend

When I hear you saying
That we stood no chance
I'll dive for your memory
We stood that chance

We stood side by side
Strong and true
I just wish you'd remember
Bad times don't get you through

When I hear you saying
That we stood no chance
I'll dive for your memory
We stood that chance

Now, I dive black waters
The waters of her dream
Are black and forgetful
I'd like to make them clean

When I hear you saying
That we stood no chance
I'll dive for your memory
We stood that chance

When I hear you saying
That we stood no chance
I'll dive for your memory
And we stood that chance

We did, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, we did
Yeah

    this is just about that big true love (or friendship) that couldn't be, yet almost was. and he's saying it could have been great, and there was hope for them once, and she shouldn't forget that, because it meant something. when she says"they "stood no chance" it really affects him. he's willing to "dive for her memory" to make her change her mind about the past. even though it won't change the fact that it's definitely over between them.
    god, this song breaks my heart every time.
