"Memories (Soft Machine cover)" as written by and Hugh Colin Hopper....
I know I cannot leave this place
full of memories
Things like the way they knew us
all over town

We used to walk the streets together
We could be seen
Past shops where people knew us
Yeah, people knew

I've got to choose between tomorrow
and yesterday
I can't stop to think about
my life, here today

Maybe I'll find someone to get you
off my mind
Take me away from here
and leave it, leave it all behind

Memories can hang you up and haunt you
all your life, you know
Get so you cannot stay
and yet cannot go

I could find out where she's gone
Today I feel so unhappy
Streets seem so empty now
I want you with me

    General Commenti cant believe this only has two comments! cedric's voice is fucking SPOT ON in this track. definitely a nice deviation from the rest of the record, sound wise i mean. i think its beautiful and quite uniquely different for TMV! bravo!

    General CommentYeah.. even for a cover this should have more comments. Cedric totally owns this song.

    Unfortunately the lyrics here are not right... By which I mean the song is shorter than this. There are 6 'verses' here, and in the version I have, the 3:04 iTunes bonus track, only verses 1,2,5 & 6 (going by the ones listed here) are present.

    Still, pretty killer.
