"More Than Memories" as written by Nuno Bettencourt and Gary F. Cherone....
We're falling faster every second that we waste on
living in the moment 'til the moments gone.
But what have we got to lose?
You're a liar but I'm hanging on every word
of every late night call, but most of all,
I'm hoping that I'll be more that just a memory
when the feeling fades...

I could tell by every word that was on your lips
and the touch of your hand. I know you're spinning me in circles again.
No not again...

It's taking everything that I have just to stay here.
Everything I am says to let go. But what have I got to lose?
I'm hoping for better next time.
It kills me to know what you can't hide.
Your will is weak, but his talk is cheap.
So I brace myself.

I could tell by every word that was on your lips
and the touch of your hand. I know you're spinning me in circles again.
No not again...
I can't take this.
We were so close.
I don't wanna know.

    General CommentI really love this song. I never really listened to Stages and Stereos that much, but I came across this song one day and I really love it.

    "We're falling faster every second that we waste on
    living in the moment 'til the moments gone.
    But what have we got to lose?
    You're a liar but I'm hanging on every word
    of every late night call, but most of all,
    I'm hoping that I'll be more that just a memory
    when the feeling fades..."

    Basically, the person feels like the relationship is falling, but they really don't have anything to lose so they stay in it anyways, they know the other person is lying, but they just don't care.

    "I could tell by every word that was on your lips
    and the touch of your hand. I know you're spinning me in circles again.
    No not again..."

    Basically the same thing as said above, it seems that the person is being taken advantage of (spinning me in circles again).

    "It's taking everything that I have just to stay here.
    Everything I am says to let go. But what have I got to lose?
    I'm hoping for better next time.
    It kills me to know what you can't hide.
    Your will is weak, but his talk is cheap.
    So I brace myself."

    It is really hard to stay in the relationship when they know they are being lied to and mistreated. They know deep down they should let go, but they aren't strong enough to do it. It really hurts the person to know about the lies they are being told (it kills me to know what you can't hide).

    "I could tell by every word that was on your lips
    and the touch of your hand. I know you're spinning me in circles again.
    No not again...
    I can't take this.
    We were so close.
    I don't wanna know."

    I think it finally got to the point where the relationship was going to end. It is so hard on the person, because they did have a good relationship at some point.

    This is such a sad song.

    This kind of makes me think that the song is about someone who had a previous relationship with a girl that had ended, and now she is trying to get him back, hence the "no, not again..." As if he isnt going to make the same mistake again.
