lyrics

When you remember me
Close your eyes and consider me
Read my letters tenderly
Read them aloud, aloud, aloud
As you tend to me
Don’t forget

When you remember me
You’re my friend and my enemy
Keep the best and worst of me
Because I’m bound, I’m bound, I’m bound
To your memory
Don’t forget

Keep your faith heavy
And memorize my lines
You’re gonna need to know them all, know them all
If you forget me
Or if you have to bring me low
I am yours, and they never can take that away

Love, you’re a stripped live wire
I wrestle you at night when I can’t get tired
It keeps me occupied
It keeps you quiet
I hang on the line all all night
And even if it’s plastic and string
I hold tight
Our broken telephone
It’s all I know

I keep my faith heavy
I memorized your lines
I know I need to hold it all, hold it all
Don’t get to forget you
I take you with me where I go
You are mine
And I never can put you away

Old friend, look at us now, we get on somehow
Old friend, look at us now, we get on somehow
Darling, what I need now is to go lie down
Old friend, look at us now, we get on somehow
