lyrics

I'll remember, I'll remember.
I swear I'll remember your face this time,
but I can never seem
to form the lines of you in my mind.
Only darkness, darkness
when I shut my eyes to the world.
Shut out all the problems
that I once thought
that I'd solve in time, only lies
that I told myself,
these grand delusions to maintain mental health, mental health.

But I promised, I promised,
I promised to myself that
I'll remember, I'll remember.
I swear I'll remember the man
that I ought to be, so flatter me.
Tell me that I'm everything.
We all want to listen.
We all want to feel like we are needed,
kneaded like dough on a cold cutting board,
formed to pieces.
As much as we'd like to think we're unique,
we see now the mold that shapes our physique.
And when we peek,
does it all go downhill
faster and faster?

I'll remember, I'll remember.
I swear I'll remember the reason that I promised you that
I'll remember, I'll remember.
I know I'll remember the reason that I can't see your face anymore.

I'll remember, I'll remember.
Lord have mercy, I'll remember.

I can't see your face.
And I can't your face anymore.
