I Remember

I remember the way you took my hand
I remember how you lead me down a path
I remember the way you left me cold
I remember even though I’m older

I’d sit at home at night crying with my TV
I’d turn it up loud so the neighbours wouldn’t hear me

don’t worry about me
someone filled your space
and I remember 
you were easy to replace

didn’t have to run an ad
or even look around
went to the harbour and found me another clown
wasn’t the same as you except where it counts

don’t worry about me
I don’t go without

I write you letters now and take you by surprise
when I say I don’t agree then you realize
all you had to offer me was that look in your eyes
instead we turn away and our love slowly dies

I remember the way you took my hand
I remember how you lead me down a path
I remember the way you left me cold
I remember even though I’m older
