Lyrics

Sweet Memory

Written By: Jesse Kessler

Here we are, through it all
Battered by winds of change
Beaten down by broken hearts
And dreams that died with age

Now we stare, with empty eyes
At blank pages of our lives
And faded pictures of good times
That feel like distant stars

We live our lives in what used to be
And we survive by sweet memory
And it’s beautiful but it’s killing me
Sweet memory

Here we stand, on a battlefield
With a glimpse of hope as our shield
And a sword smothered with our blood
From wounds that never heal

Now we pray, to a pointless cause
There’s a savior out there to guide us all
Our heads are so far in the past
Our futures have been lost

We live our lives in what used to be
And we survive by sweet memory
And it’s beautiful but it’s killing me
Sweet memory

Giving in is not an option
Crying’s not a cure
Looking back will lead to failure
And leave more hardships to endure
Perseverance will help guide you
Give you will to live with pride
There’s a new world waiting for you
If you push your past aside

We live our lives in what used to be
And we survive by sweet memory
And it’s beautiful but it’s killing me
Sweet memory
