Better as a memory – Kenny Chesney


I move on like a sinners prayer
I let ’em go like a levee breaks
walk away as if I don’t care
learn to shoulder my mistakes
I’m built to fade like your favorite song
gettin’ reckless when there’s no need
laugh as your stories ramble on
break my heart but it won’t bleed
my only friends are pirates, it’s just who I am
I’m better as a memory than as your man.

I’m never sure when the truth won’t do
I’m pretty good on a lonely night
I move on the way a storm blows through
I never stay, but then again, I might
I struggle sometimes to find the words
always sure until I doubt
walk a line until it blurs
build walls too high to climb out
but I’m honest to a fault, it’s just who I am
I’m better as a memory than as your man

I see you leanin’, you’re bound to fall
I don’t want to be that mistake
I’m just a dreamer, nothing more
you should know it before it gets too late

cause goodbyes are like a roulette wheel
you never know where they’re gonna land
first you’re spinning, then you’re standing still
left holding a losin’ hand
but one day you’re gonna find someone
right away, you’ll know it’s true
that all of your seekings done
it was just a part of the passing through
right there in that moment
you’ll finally understand
that I was better as a memory than as your man
better as a memory than as your man
