Kenny Chesney "Better As A Memory"
I move on like a sinners prayer And letting go like a levee breaks Walk away as if I don't care Learn to shoulder my mistakes Or built to fade like your favorite song Get reckless when there's no need Laugh as your stories ramble on Break my heart, but it won't bleed My only friends are pirates That's just who I am But I'm better as a memory than as your man
Never sure when the truth won't bend And pretty good on a lonely night Or move on the way a storm blows through And never stay, but then again, I might. I struggle sometimes to find the words Always sure until I doubt Walk a line until it blurs Build walls too high to climb out But I'm honest to a fault That's just who I am I'm better as a memory than as your man
I see you leaning, you're bound to fall I don't want to be that mistake I'm just a dreamer and nothing more You should know it before it gets too late
Cause goodbyes are like a roulette wheel You never know where they're gonna land First you're spinning, then you're standing still Left holding a losing hand But one day you're gonna find someone And right away you'll know it's true That all of your sinking's done It was just a part of the passing through Right there in that moment you'll finally understand That I was better as a memory than as your man Better as a memory than as your man
