So here I am with my thoughts of you
And this world I've left for me
Stoic faces when I think of you
And how I once believed
So now you call me, but you know I won't let you through I've myself to deceive

So leave the memories alone, I don't wnat to see
The way it is, as to how it used to be
Leave the memories alone, don't change a thing
And I'll hold you here in my memory

So I find me in your garden now
A sad smile for the scene
And all the flowers that we planted now
Taken by the weeds
But in my minds eye, you know they still bloom for me
The stand tall there in that summer breeze

(chorus)

You'll never change, you'll never change, you'll never change
You will never change

    General CommentI think the guy is in denial he thinks of the girl in a good way, even though she broke his heart, and she keeps trying to contact him and he is like leave me alone i wanna remember u in a good light not how you really are,

    General CommentFirst off let me just say that I can't believe this song doesn't have more comments. It is a great song, and possibly one of my favorite songs.

    Now on to its meaning. I believe that jrock is right, it is about a person who is trying to prevent from talking to an ex that he/she once loved and had their heart broken. It is a way of saying, "Please leave me be, because I want to know you for who you were and not what you have become and what has been done to me."

    General CommentI really like this song. Like a lot.

    I don't think it has to only be about ex's though it probably is but...

    I think the guy is talking about a something in the past that was good but suddenly something bad happened and he doesnt want to remember the bad thing, he only wants to remember the good times and someone's trying to talk to him about the bad times....I'm probably wrong, but whatever.

    General Commentits a beautiful song my meanings to this song are.

    a friend is saying to his best friend that no matter how bad past we had now we are going to make a new start so its time for us to forget the past leave the memories of past and telling him that we will always be present in eachothers memories.
    this line
    So I find me in your garden now
    really touches my heart..
    as i far as i concern it means that now i find myself in the garden of ur luv.


    guyz dont mind but i think the vocalist of FUEL lil bit sounds like DALLAS SMITH ( Vocalist OF DEFAULT)

    General CommentI think its about the original singer who left the band after they had a fallen out. They might have hung out in his garden and planted flowers?

    Brill song. Great choice by WWE for Ric Flairs retirement. This song sends shivers down my spine.

    Awesome

    General CommentWhat it means to me is that someone has lost someone, either a best friend, family member or a lover to a break up or an illness/death. They don't want to remember the horrible thing that parted them, they want to forget that, they just want to remember the good times when they were both happy and that person will always be in their memory, which is said in the line, "I'll hold you in my memory."

    A truly beautiful song!

    General CommentYeap its a break up song... The girl is prolly getting back with the guy.. But he sings this song.. He doesnt want the already broken relationship to break some more.. He cuts his losses and forgets the girl... but in his mind he'll never forget what they've been through... hence "I'll just hold you here in my memory"

    General CommentLove this song.
    To me, it's about a relationship, and how it ended badly. The guy is saying he'll always remember the girl in a good way, with the good memories. He won't think of how it is right now. So he wants her to just leave the memories alone, because maybe he feels if they start again, those memories will be ruined. That's why he says she'll never change.
