I'll Take The Memories Lyrics

by Tanya Tucker

There's a van out in the drive
It's time to divide everything up
We've taken down the bed
Where so many nights we made love

We've gone through everything
And given back the rings
We once cherished
You can take the things you want
And leave the things you don't
But as for me

I'll take the memories
You can have the rest
Well, I know we've had some bad times
But our good times were the best

There's, oh, so many keepsakes
After all that we've been through
But I'll take the memories
If I can't have you

I don't know just what I'll do
I've been so used to loving you
Such a long time and even though I'll try
There's no way that I'll get you off my mind

So while we're packing up our lives
And saying our goodbyes, I won't tell you
You can take the things you want
And leave the things you don't
But as for me

I'll take the memories
You can have the rest
I know we had some bad times
But our good times were the best

There's so many keepsakes
After all that we've been through
Yes, I'll take the memories
If I can't have you
