I hope I'm not simply publishing the same thing again, but I think I'm supposed to "submit as final" so here goes. If you've got any feedback don't be afraid to send it :)

Afterimages

July 17, 2017


Verse 1:
I’m writing this down in a notebook so I won’t forget
These days that we’re in ‘cause the rest of them seem to have left
Our own homemade daydreams are slowly dissolving into
An old fairy tale that’s distorted the clearest of views

Chorus 1:
But something ‘bout memories that last make a way to the past
Whether good or bad, they take you away
And reaching for every old scene, this all feels like a dream
Try to put it all on replay
Make the afterimages stay

Verse 2:
I’m writing this down in a notebook so I’ll always know
That days past can find their way back but then don’t want to go
The time that it takes to escape things you didn’t ask for
Why I fear the future and some of the new things in store

Chorus 1:
‘Cause something ‘bout memories that last make a way to the past
Whether good or bad, they take you away
And reaching for every old scene, this all feels like a dream
Try to put it all on replay
Make the afterimages stay

Bridge:
It’s no mistake, all the photos you take
And drawing them out on the wall
And journal entries written down in a breeze
To try and remember it all
And hope those old memories will call

Chorus 2:
‘Cause something ‘bout memories that last make a way to the past
Whether good or bad they take you away
And holding on to every old thread, hope it stays in your head
Want to put it on a display
Make the afterimages stay
