Better As A Memory Lyrics

by Kenny Chesney

I Move on like a sinner's prayer
Lettin' go like a levee brakes
Walk away as if I dont care
Learn to shoulder my mistakes
I'm built to fade like your favorite song
Get reckless when theres no need
Laugh as your stories ramble on
Break my heart, but it wont bleed

My only friends are pirates
Its just who I am
Im better as a memory
Than as your man

Never sure when the truth wont do
I'm pretty good on a lonely night
I move on the way the storm blows through
I 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 clime out
Its just who I am
I'm better as a memory
Than as you man

I see you leaning
Youre bound to fall
I dont want to be that mistake
Im just a dreamer
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 youre spinning then your standin' still
Left holdin' A losing hand
One day your gonna find someone
Right away you'll know its true
That all of your seekin's done
Its 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
