"Just A Memory" as written by and Elvis Costello....
The sadness come when it's least expected
It's shot out the dark straight into our face
The hurt it brings can't be stopped
The hurt it brings can't be cured

Just when I thought things were alright
You came and ripped out my heart
My stomach full of butterflies
The thought of you gone, it tears me apart

I remember you and me, when we used to laugh all night
Until we fell asleep
And I know we're through
But I've still got thoughts of you left inside my head
In my head

The love that I had for you is gone..has drifted so far away
But you're still here in my head
And you're still here
You'll never leave my heart

So stop me now
Stop my thoughts because you're killing me
But you don't know it
Though we've grown apart I'll still be there for you
But I don't want to be just a memory to you

    General Commenti think it means that as much as he loves her and cant be with her and that road is done that bridge is burnt he still wants to look past the ashes and try to keep what they can....friendship

    General Commenti know what this song means. it means that even though what they had (love) is over now, he still wants to remain friends because she is and will always be very special to him and he doesn't want her completely out of his life
