"For The Memory Of Love" as written by and Kyle Bishop Shawn Magill....
The last time I saw her,
I stood tall and played the role.
The great architects' post and lintel has fallen.
It ended in Chicago on the phone,
And it took two years for my contempt to turn to compassion.
And with mascara tears,
She cried I will not survive without you.
I would like to think that everything is OK,
That it's not just broken wings beneath my heels.
She needs more to survive this memory of love.
I need more to forget this memory of love.
Will it ever end?
In life you have to choose your own pain,
Especially when it comes to the memory of love.

    General CommentI love this song! "In life you have to choose your own pain" is true... life is what you make of it, that's what I think. What do I know, though? "I will not survive without you." That's one of my favorite lines ever... it just seems like this song is about the two of them falling apart and just wishing that the pain would disappear faster. =\

    General CommentThis song is badass. I think its about the guy leaving a girl who needed him more than he needed her "And with mascara tears, she cried "I will not survive without you"" and when he says "it's not just broken wings beneath my heels." its like hes walking away, and he thinks she needs help to get over him and hes trying to forget her. I dunno, thats just how i see this song, especially since im going thru that now
