Love and memories by OAR [ music video + lyrics ]

Love And Memories by Of A Revolution was inspired by The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – a movie about erasing one’s memory… 🎵 Love me faster than the devil. Run me straight into the ground. Drown in deep inside your water . . . your sound… 🎶

Love And Memories is a song by American rock band, Of A Revolution. O.A.R. lead singer, Marc Roberge, said it was inspired by The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – a movie about two ex-lovers, Joel (Jim Carrey) and Clementine (Kate Winslet), who underwent a process to literally erase their memories of each other. (1)

I thought about how frustrating that is, if someone’s trying to intentionally erase you from their memory, how painful that could be. But in the end, it’s really impossible; and that’s the lesson of the movie. Obviously, it’s impossible to get rid of something that changes you.

O.A.R. – Love and Memories (Official Video) by Atlantic Records, on YouTube

Lovely, you’re always lovely;
A vision, you were the one.
Now, I am stuck inside a memory;
You forgot about our destiny.
You buried me, didn’t you?

You’re always floating,
A vapor that I couldn’t see.
Here I am stuck inside a yesterday;
Everything has given way.
You fell from me, didn’t you?

Maybe I am a crowded mind;
I watch your eyes glaze over.
Stare down at the floor;
You were amazing to me;
I was amazing to you,
But here we go again.

(Didn’t you) love me faster than the devil?
Run me straight into the ground.
Drown in deep inside your water;
Drown in deep inside your sound.

O.A.R., Love And Memories

Put my fears to sleep

“…and put my fears to sleep” Lovely poem!

Poems in a Coffer

The stars are mute tonight

The sky is in a silent phase

The wind has lost its music

And the moon has no story to tell

This taciturn aphonic night

Is what my heart abhors

So sing me a lullaby, will you?

And put my fears to sleep.

My funny valentine [ lyric video ]

My funny valentine,
Sweet, comic valentine,
You make me smile with my heart.
Your looks are laughable,
Un-photographable,
Yet, you’re my favorite work of art.

My funny Valentine – Chet Baker – Lyric Video by Giuseppe Vergara, on Youtube

My funny valentine,
Sweet, comic valentine,
You make me smile with my heart.
Your looks are laughable,
Un-photographable,
Yet, you’re my favorite work of art.

Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak,
are you smart?

But don’t change a hair for me,
Not if you care for me;
Stay little valentine, stay.
Each day is valentine’s day.

Frank Sinatra, My Funny Valentine
Lyrics by Rodgers Richard and Hart Lorenz

Bittersweet memories by Bullet For My Valentine [ music video + lyrics ]

🎼 You turn me off at the push of a button – And you pretend that I don’t mean nothing – I’m not a saint; that’s easy to tell – But guess what, honey? You ain’t no angel – You like to scream; use words as a weapon – Well, go ahead take your best shot, woman – I wanna leave you – it’s easy to see;
But guess what, honey? It’s not that easy. 🎵

Bullet For My Valentine – Bittersweet Memories by Bullet For My Valentine, on YouTube

You turn me off at the push of a button,
And you pretend that I don’t mean nothing.
I’m not a saint; that’s easy to tell;
But guess what, honey? You ain’t no angel.

You like to scream; use words as a weapon;
Well, go ahead take your best shot, woman.
I wanna leave you – it’s easy to see;
But guess what, honey? It’s not that easy.

I wanna run and escape from your prison;
But when I leave, I feel something is missing.
I’m not afraid; that’s easy to tell;
This can’t be heaven; It feels like I’m in hell.

You’re like a drug that I can’t stop taking;
I want more and I can’t stop craving.
I still want you; it’s easy to see;
But guess what, honey? You’re not that good for me.

We get so complicated (complicated);
This finger’s for our memories.

So rip my pictures from your wall;
Tear them down and burn them all.
Light the fire and walk away;
There’s nothing left to say, so…

Take the ashes from the floor;
Bury them to just make sure
That nothing more is left of me –
Just bittersweet memories.

Just bittersweet memories…

There’s nothing left to say.
There’s nothing left to say.

Bullet For My Valentine, Bittersweet Memories
