The Smithereens
Only A Memory
---------------------------------------------

my mind is filled with thoughts of you
     i think about the days up to
i search the room but you're not there
  your perfume lingers everywhere
              but it's

             (chorus)
          only a memory
  of what our love was going to be
          only a memory
     broken bits of you and me
          only a memory
          only a memory

   in a world of pain i have no fear
   you'd fade away and disappear
   and no i have to learn the game
where no one wins or takes the blame
              but it's

          only a memory
  of what our love was going to be
          only a memory
      now that we are history
          only a memory
          only a memory
              but it's

             (chorus)

     why should it matter if i cry
    i sit around and wonder why
  now i feel much too weak to live
     i've got nothing left to give
              but it's

             (chorus)

          only a memory
              (fade)
