mine was a memory of amber walks
yours was a house with the strangest doors
one day you told me your heart was full
I wanted to know what the trouble was

I loved the story for what it's worth
spun them around me to watch them grow
but you found a way to forget some time ago
that I was your waterfall

when you say that you've been good
but you don't know where you were
I'm forgetting every word
I'm forgetting everyone
when the water's falling slowly
but the river comes - I'm done
I'm forgetting every word
I'm forgetting everyone

how did you bury these trails in dirt
must be the way that you carry on
I can recall every second thought
you watered them dearly and drowned them all
I have been searching for Camelot
finding your way somewhere down below
but you found a way to forget sometime ago
without ever asking first

when you say that you've been good
but you don't know where you were
I'm forgetting every word
I'm forgetting everyone
when the water's falling slowly
on the rivers come - I'm done
I'm forgetting every word
I'm forgetting everyone

    General CommentMine was a memory of amber walls
    Yours was a house with the strangest doors.
    One day you told me your heart was full
    I wanted to know what the trouble was.

    I loved a story for what it's worth
    Spun them around me to watch them grow
    Like you found a way to forget some time ago
    That I was your waterfall.

    When you say that you'd been good
    But you don't know where you were
    I'm forgetting every word
    I'm forgetting everyone
    Where the water's falling slowly
    Where the river comes undone
    I'm forgetting every word
    I'm forgetting everyone.

    How did you bury these trails in dirt?
    Must be the way that you carry on
    I can recall every second thought
    You watered them dearly and drowned them all.
    I had been searching for Camelot
    Finding your way somewhere down below
    When you found a way to forgive
    Some time ago, without ever asking first.

    When you say that you'd been good
    But you don't know where you were
    I'm forgetting every word
    I'm forgetting everyone
    Where the water's falling slowly
    Where the river's come undone
    I'm forgetting every word
    I'm forgetting every word.
