Better As A Memory

In the style of

Kenny Chesney

Lyrics

i move on like
a sinners prayer
and letting go
like a levee breaks

walk away as if
i don't care
learn to shoulder
my mistakes

or built to fade like
your favorite song
get 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
that's just who i am
but i'm better
as a memory
than as your man

never sure when
the truth won't do
and pretty good on
a lonely night

or move on the way
a storm blows through
and 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
that's just who i am
i'm better as a memory
than as your man

i see you leaning
you're bound to fall
i don't want to be
that mistake

i'm just a dreamer
and 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
losing hand

but one day you're
gonna find someone
and right away you'll
know it's true

that all of your
seeking's done
it's 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
