More Than a Memory -- Garth Brooks



Well, I've heard it sung on my computer, and the boys didn't do a half bad job of it, but I think their lyrics were a bit different in strategic places... Here's the "real" deal, (I think).

Album: The Ultimate Hits 2007
Garth Brooks

People say she's only in my head;
It's gonna take time, but I'll forget;
They say I need to get on with my life;
What they don't realize

Is when you're dialing six numbers just to hang up the phone,
Driving cross town just to see if she's home,
Waking a friend in the dead of the night,
Just to hear him say ,"It'll be alright,"
When you're finding things to do not to fall asleep
'Cause you know she'll be there in your dreams;
That's when she's
More than a memory.

Took a match to everything she ever wrote,
Watched her words go up in smoke;
Tore all her pictures off the wall;
That ain't helping me at all.

'Cause when you're talking out loud and nobody's there;
You look like hell and you just don't care;
You're drinking more than you ever drank;
Sinking down lower than you ever sank;
When you find yourself falling onto your knees,
Praying to God, begging him "please";
That's when she's
More than a memory.

She's more
She's more

'Cause when you're dialing her number just to hang up the phone,
Driving cross town just to see if she's home,
Waking a friend in the dead of the night,
just to hear him say, "Its going to be alright;"
When you're finding things to do not to fall asleep
'Cause you know she 's waiting in your dreams;
That's when she's
More than a memory.

People say she's only in my head;
It's gonna take time, but I'll forget,
But when she's in every minute of every day,
Every thought I think,
Every breath I take,
She's everywhere and she's everything;
She's more than a memory.
