Better As a Memory

By Kenny Chesney

The new Kenny Chesney album came out yesterday.  At first, I hated it, then I decided it was ok, then this morning I realized that there's a few really really good songs on it.  Here's the one that almost made me cry and is probably the best song off the album...

Move on like a sinner's prayer,
Letting go like a levy breaks,
Walk away as if I don't care,
Learn to shoulder my mistakes.
I'm built to fade like your favorite song,
Getting reckless when there's no need,
Laugh when your stories ramble on,
Break my heart but it won't bleed.
My only friends are pirates,
It's just who I am.
I'm better as a memory than as your man.

I'm never sure when the truth won't do.
I'm pretty good on a lonely night.
I move on the way a storm blows through.
I never stay but then again I might.
I struggle sometimes to find the words.
I'm always sure until I doubt.
I walk a line until it blurs,
Built walls too high to climb out.
I'm honest to a fault,
It's just who I am.
I'm better as a memory than as your man.

I see you leaning.
You're bound to fall.
I don't wanna be that mistake.
I'm 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 you're spinning then you're standing still,
Left holding a losing a hand,
But one day you're gonna find someone,
And right away you'll know it's true,
That all of your seeking's done.
It's 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.
