Shinedown - In Memory Lyrics

Some of the ugliest things took the longest time to make
And some of the easiest habits are the hardest ones to break
And I'm not asking for value nor the pain but I am asking
For a way out of this lie

Because I can't wait for you to catch up with me
And I can't live in the past and drown myself in memories

Welcome to nowhere and finding out where it is
And fixing your problems and starting over again
You're feeding your ego with what you can see outside
And you're killing yourself for not speaking your mind

Because I can't wait for you to catch up with me
And I can't live in the past and drown myself in memories

In memories

I wonder why you make believe you live your life straight through me
I cannot understand why you question me and then you lie
I will not justify your ways, I cannot show you an escape
I do not know you any more, I never knew you anyway

Because I can't wait for you to catch up with me
And I can't live in the past and drown myself in memories

Because I can't wait
And I can't live in the past and drown myself in memories

In memory
In memory

Shinedown In Memory Comments
  1. Marrisa Robinson

    My memory 😀

  2. Hakkı Mert Salman

    Shinedown certainly doesn't see the value it deserves

  3. MegadethDude2001

    I never really understood this song until my most recent relationship with my best friend, of whom is a girl and I wanted us to become more than friends. I've waited for so long, almost 2 years, and then I finally realized it will never happen. So the line "I can't wait for you to catch up with me, and I can't live in the past and drown myself in memories" resonates with me greatly.

    I was in high school for this band. 2003.. I graduated 2005 do the math... I. Seen this fucking band honest 16 times since my first show in 2005. On my daughter..... Summerfest Milwaukee... Eagles ball room In Milwaukee. Wisconsin. All over the state .. So glad they become what they have. CHERISHED MEMORIES 2019 and they are big time now
