DUCHESS, HOW I REMEMBER

Oh how I remember her
And all the things we used to do
Now I go through another heartache
every time there's a new daybreak
And she's no longer here beside me
Oh Duchess, How I Remember You

Turning back the pages in my mind
scared of what I'm going to find
viewing all these memories of her .
How I wish she really knew
how she touched me with her eyes.
I can't believe she let go so easily.
Now I feel like my life has become
a fading light from a distant shore.
Without turning she just closed the door
and left me standing on the other side.
Just standing outside, alone looking in.
Oh Duchess, How I Remember You.

I know this is a love I'll never win
I've tried hard to swallow all my pride
and now there's nothing left inside
but an empty shell of memories of her
There was a time when I waited
for the darkness to push out the daylight
And I've felt like a predator in the night
when I've snuck around to her back door
scheming of a way to capture her heart,
but the shadows in the widow cut deep
and I've dragged my wounded carcass home
The pain of rejection tearing apart my mind
The anguish of self pity numbing my soul.
My world is gone and I won't even cry
as I would rather lay my spirit down and die
Oh Duchess, How I Remember You

Bound up inside by all these fears
Fighting hard to hold back the tears
I can't say she ever really hurt me
Because she would never let me near
what was really deep inside of her
And I don't know how to make her mine
I know I'm going to hurt for a long time
I did everything that I could think of
to try and change her mind to love me.
I know I'm going to miss her for a long time
I will never be tempted by love again
Never again will I ever endure this pain
There was a time I thought our love was sweet
now I know that it would have been better
to never have loved her at all
Oh Duchess How I Remember You.

Oh Duchess How I Remember You
Standing beside me so warm and sweet
You were this poor boys greatest treat
Oh Duchess How I Remember You
Holding my hand and squeezing it tight
When you were here my world was all right
Even when the clouds were in the sky
The sun would always shine bright
Oh Duchess How I Remember You
I remember when I was with you
there was nothing I couldn't do.
I felt we had the world to ourselves
Oh Duchess How I Remember You
