Why am I chained to a memory?
Why does the thought of you still torture me?
When will I find someone to set me free?
So I won't be
Chained to a memory

Why am I chained to the hurt I knew?
Each day you thought of something cruel to do
Where in this world can I escape from you?
So I won't be
Chained to a memory

Your letters threw them in the fire
Your picture out the window
All that I could find that reminded me of you
I threw them, threw them all away

But I get up every the morning and I'm pacing the floor
Like I'm expecting you to walk through the door
I keep forgetting I won't see you any more
Guess I'm doomed to be
Chained to a memory
Just a memory
