Better As A Memory Lyrics by Kenny Chesney


Kenny Chesney Lyrics

Better As A Memory 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 Bend
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 Sinking's Done
It Was 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
