You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory
It doesn't pay to try
All the smart boys know why
It doesn't mean I didn't try
I just never know why

Feel so cold and all alone
'Cause baby, you're not at home
And when I'm home
Big deal, I'm still alone

Feel so restless, I am
Beat my head against a pole
Try to knock some sense
Down in my bones

And even though they don't show
The scars aren't so old
And when they go
They let you know

You can't put your arms around a memory
You can't put your arms around a memory
You can't put your arms around a memory
Don't try
Don't try

You're just a bastard kid
And you got no name
'Cause you're living with me
We're one and the same

And even though they don't show
The scars aren't so old
And when they go
They let you know (I'll tell)

You can't put your arms around a memory
You can't put your arms around a memory
You can't put your arms around a memory
Don't try
Don't try

You can't put your arms around a memory
You can't put your arms around a memory
You can't put your arms around a memory
Don't try
Don't try
Don't try (Try)
Don't try
Don't try (Try)
