Strike a match and light this candle
We'll watch it burn down to the end
And through the night we'll talk and laugh about
How these memories began


We're like a submarine submerging
Into oceans no one knows
And when we reach the bottoms eerie dark
I'll still see your glow


We would walk and I would hold your hand
And your fingernails pierced my skin
Like you were so afraid of something
Was it letting someone in?


Now it's just wax on the table
Puddles in the sand
Scars across my fingers
Where I used to hold your hand


Now all I have are these memories
These pictures of your face
But all they are is memories
And memories only fade
I'll forget you loved me
You'll forget my name
Because all we have are memories
And memories always fade


Pick a flower and count the petals
As you pluck them one by one
And you would count the ways you loved me
Until the moon replaced the sun


We were spirits in a graveyard
With a tombstone reading "tried"
And even though it's dark and empty
I never felt more alive


We'd lie in bed and I would feel your breath
Blowing gently in my ear
You would whisper all your secrets to me
But didn't mean for me to hear


Now there's a thorn on every flower
We're facing down our death
And there's a ghost that haunts my bedpost
Where I used to feel your breath



Now all I have are these memories
These pictures of your face
But all they are is memories
And memories only fade
I'll forget you loathe me
You'll forget this hate
Because all we have are memories
And memories always fade
