Burning The Memories


Breaking down each and every wall
This time around I won't let my-self fall
I'm getting away to clear my head
No more with this feeling that inside I'm dead
Everything that happend was wrong
But this time I'm going to stand strong

Burning down the memories of you
Burning down the memories of everything I went through
Burning down the memories of late nights crying
Burning down the memories of all the lieing

I know I'll never forget my past
I learnd that somethings just don't last
I'm going to say good-bye and walk away
There's nothing left here for me stay
I had to wipe away all the tears
To stand up and face all my fears
I can't depend on them to make everything right
This time around it's my fight
I have to depend on me
It took so long for me to see

Burning the memories of the pain
Burning the memories of running in the rain
Burning the memories of all that happend to me
Burning the memories of the heart break to be

I have to fix my broken heart
I was the one who let it get rpped apart
I'm not going to keep with the same dream
Keeping my mouth shut so I can't scream
Place my feet firm on the floor
I'm going to lock the door
There's nothing left to hide
Letting all of you know the feeling inside
I do not need anyone to take my hand
Now after so long I understand
This is the truth for all of you to know
This time around it's not a show
There are things we can never
I can say I have been through hell

Burning the memories of it all
Burning the memories of your last call
Burning the memories of you kissing she
Burning the memories of you saying you love me
Burning the memories of ever saying hi
Here are my last words 'Good-Bye'

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
