A Terrible Thing

Isn’t memory a terrible thing

Remember the good things
and you feel like today is lacking

Remember the bad things
and you get hurt all over again

Isn’t memory a terrible thing

You look at a stranger
and you see imprints
of somebody else in the past

You overhear a conversation
and it sounds like something
somebody had said to you

Isn’t memory a terrible thing

Something wonderful in the past
turned sour
because you cannot have it now

Something shameful in the past
got carried forward
because people just don’t forget

Isn’t memory a terrible thing

It keeps coming back to you
It refuses to let go of you
and you keep making more of it
as if it wasn’t enough already

Memory is a terrible thing

because it is everyone
and everywhere
and everything.
