The Recesses of Your Memory

April 9, 2009

I wish that when I heard a song, it didn’t instantly remind me of Chris. Although, for the record, I’m getting better. I know I never really explained to the fullest what exactly happened, but suffice to say that chapter of my life can be summed up, thanks to one song.

It’s wonderful. The song, that is. And how PERFECTLY FITTING IT IS TO THE SITUATION.

(Right girls?)

And as his birthday is coming up this Friday, and I find myself remembering just how much he’s hurt me in the past, oh, 11 years, I sing EVEN LOUDER.

It goes a little something like this:

‘Cause I’ll be there in the back of your mind,
From the day we met to you making me cry.
And it’s just too bad.
You’ve already had the best days,
The best days of your life.

Ain’t it a shame,
A shame that every time you hear my name
Brought up in a casual conversation
You can’t think straight?
Ain’t it sad you can’t forget about what we had?
Take a look at her, and do you like what you see
or do you wish it was me?

‘Cause I’ll be there in the back of your mind,
From the day we met to the very last night.
And it’s just too bad.
You’ve already had the best days,
The best days of your life.

Does she know, know about the times you used to hold me,
Wrap me in your arms,
And how you told me I’d be the only one?
Heard about (yeah, someone told me)
Once when you were out she went a little crazy,
Ran her mouth about me.
Ain’t jealousy funny?

Cause I’ll be there in the back of your mind,
From the day we met to you making me cry.
And it’s just too bad.
You’ve already had the best days,
The best days of your life.

Life with me was a fairy tale love.
I was head-over-heels ’til you threw away us.
And it’s just too bad.
You’ve already had the best days,
The best days of your life.

I heard you’re gonna get married,
Have a nice little family,
Live out my dreams with someone new.

But I’ve been told that a cheater is always a cheater,
And I’ve got my pride
And she’s got you.

Cause I’ll be there in the back of your mind,
From the day we met to you making me cry.
And it’s just too bad.
You’ve already had the best days,
The best days of your life.

Of your life.
Yeah.
You’re gonna think of me.
It’s a shame.

That felt good to get off my chest. And hopefully, there will be no more space devoted to his memory. Because quite honestly, he doesn’t deserve it.

And in tomorrow’s installment, the return of Greekman.
