If all I am is the memories that I have
Then days like this can show who I'll become

I am lying here with you
But you won't remember at all some day
And I'm holding on to words now that you once said

Holding back the tide for you
Even when you couldn’t see me
It has always been you and me in this dream

You twist and turn and I listen to you breathe
I wish my sleep would come so easily

I am lying next to you
But you won't remember at all some day
And I'm holding on to words now that you once said

Holding back the tide for you
Even when you couldn't see me
It has always been you and me in this dream

Time is a seam running through our lives
And sometimes when the lines cross
It's almost like it leaves us

And life is the memories that we make
The sum of all our mistakes
And all the things that we reach for
