Lyrics of Memories

The music pushes it all aside
All the pain the melody hides,
The lyrics carry the memories away
And the beat makes sure they stay,
Songs help but then they end and
All the hurt rushes to me again
Some songs do nothing but twist the knife
With words reminding me of our old life
All the things that have come and gone
Are brought back to me through every sad song
Surely time will heal all my hurt
And i'll keep fighting for all it's worth
So I'll let my heart ride the rythem of every song
And Pray the pain won't last long

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
