Bear’s Den – Selective Memories Lyrics

Bear\’s Den Selective Memories Lyrics

Last night Beth asked how you\’re getting on
I said you\’re doing good
But some of you has left
And some of you is still here
I said it first just as a joke
But beneath all of the mirrors and smoke
Sometimes I think your memory is selective
It just seems beyond convenient
Which parts are disappearing when
The times you can\’t remember
I can\’t forget
Maybe that\’s a kindness though
A beauty in the growing old
That for some
Our own memories forgive us

Well, it\’s all that I could wish for you
It\’s all that I could ever wish for you
That those memories just fade away

I reminded you just yesterday
That I have a daughter on the way
And your eyes lit up
And for a moment the clouds were lifted
I hope that when you meet her too
It\’s one of those days that stays with you
I hope she meets the person that I once knew
As she gets older, yeah I\’m sure
She\’ll ask about you more and more
And I\’ll tell her you were my best friend
And I\’ll let some of my memories slip away

It\’s all that I could wish for you
It\’s all that I could ever wish for you
It\’s all that I could wish for you
It\’s all that I could ever wish for you
That I could ever wish for you
That I could ever wish for you
That those memories just fade away
