"Old Time Memory" as written by and Josh Kelley....
Standing 'round in a crowded room
Faces here bring me back to you
Leaving town slips into my head again
My friends say stay, but I want to go

They're people here that I used to know
To the situation that you've put me in
And I can tell myself that I will be gone
But you can rest assure that I will be home

'Cause I belong to the best of you
and you belong to the things I do
When a song is how I remember you
'Cause I can tell you what it's like to be gone
When you're an old time memory
When you're an old time memory

Laying back with the headphones on
A pen in hand takes me to the dawn
Paper worn to the thoughts of you again
Taking light of the time of night

A ballpoint fast for a working mind
Chorus playing in my head again
Cause I can tell myself that I will be gone
But you can rest assure that I will be home

With the feelings that remain
and the promises in vain
and the memories are stained
for you, for you

'Cause I can tell myself that I will be gone
But you can rest assure that I will be home

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who he really loved, and he really can't get over, and in a way he doesn't want because he likes her memory. And he knows that she feels the same, int he line he goes "and i belong ot the best of you, and you belong to teh things i do" it is as if he is asying you still remember me as a good thing, and he is in a way still doing things he would for her. I could be totally misinterpretting it but that is hwo i feel about ti.
