Only The Memory Remains

This song is by Dolly Parton and appears on the album The Seeker/We Used To (1975).

You're gone now for good and it looks like I could
Stop crying but I cry just the same
When a heart breaks how long does it take
Till the pain stops and only the mem'ry remains
It's been a long time and you think that by this time
My tears would have drown on the face
I could live with a mem'ry oh but how long will it be
Till the pain stops and only the mem'ry remains
The fire that we started burns on though we parted
And our torture by the heat of the flame
If I'm strong enough to take it till the pain stops and can make it
When only the mem'ry remains
I could live with a mem'ry but how long will it be
Till the tears stop and the pain stops and only the mem'ry remains
Only the mem'ry only the mem'ry remains
