You're gone now for good
And it looks like I could stop crying
But I cry just the same

When a heart breaks
How long does it take
'Til the pain stops
And only the memory remains

It's been a long time
And you'd think that by this time
My tears would have drowned all the pain

I could live with a memory
Oh but how long will it be
'Til the pain stops
And only the memory remains

The fire that we started
Burns on though we've parted
And I'm tortured by the heat of the flame
If I'm strong enough to take it
'Til the pains stops
I can make it
When only the memory remains

I could live with a memory
But how long will it be
'Til the tears stop
And the pain stops
And only the memory remains
