My Broken Memories

Standard

So she sang to me
“My little Sunshine”
and you tell me
“I’ll love you all the time
Little girl don’t you fear
Your daddy will be right here
who’s that watching outside your window?
Daddy, that’s right you know”

bridge: then they handcuffed you and took you away
she gave me a kiss and said “I’m so sorry”

chorus: and the waves crashed down around me
and you kissed me softly
“Goodnight, I love you, goodnight”
the dark ripped at my heart
as a child I fell apart
do you even know?
the pain still threatens to show
my broken memories

As I grow older, stronger
you’ve somehow made me weaker
like I’m living in an endless winter
you use to say, together
we could melt the snow
but do you even know?
How I live in fear
Afraid, one day you’ll actually show
I’m a helpless deer
In the headlight of your vehicle

bridge: then they handcuffed you and took you away
she gave me a kiss and said “I’m so sorry”

chorus: and the waves crashed down around me
and you kissed me softly
“Goodnight, I love you, goodnight”
the dark ripped at my heart
as a child I fell apart
do you even know?
the pain still threatens to show
my broken memories

As I’m sprawled across the floor
It’s mom who find me here
Letters in my hands
and I won’t let them go
she asks, “Honey, what’s wrong?”
I’m trying so hard to hold on
How come you can always make me cry
even when you’re no where’s in sight?

Then I remember when

they handcuffed you and took you away
she gave me a kiss and said “I’m so sorry”

chorus: and the waves crashed down around me
and you kissed me softly
“Goodnight, I love you, goodnight”
the dark ripped at my heart
as a child I fell apart
do you even know?
the pain still threatens to show
my broken memories

You’re the nightmare I’m reliving

My broken memories

I still can’t listen to this song without crying.
