Mark Erelli — I Always Return lyrics

(Mark Erelli)

It's no secret, no mystery
How you once loved me so
Now you're part of my history
That was a long time ago
You'd think I'd have learned
But it's hopeless you see
I always return to your memory

You leaned on my shoulder
You whispered my name
Now the fire only smolders
Only ashes remain
But I still feel it burn
I can still feel the heat
I always return to your memory

I just can't explain
How the sound of you name
Rings in my ears all the time
And try as I may to run farther away
The closer you follow behind

I wish I'd never met you
But I dream of you still
Though I pray I'll forget you
I don't believe I ever will
You're the page I can't turn
But I can't bear to read
I always return to your memory

Guess I'll always return
