remember the times we played our parts
country radio stations never far
puzzling the remnants of our hearts
should’ve held your hand and sung along with you
should’ve told you every day i was lucky to have you
figured out what to do

burned our last photo and played with the flames
followed by the card, XO by your name
the last we kissed, you were already gone
i’m done writing songs for you ‘cause
ashes can’t rekindle our old
charred and acrid love

remember the time you took me back
to your childhood home where the sky’s so black
stars unpolluted by the lights
remember you took me to the basement
your granddad’s things in the same placement
for me your past was new

grandma told you that she wished
you’d bring a boy with your next visit
i guess soon enough you will

burned those first photos into my eyes
of you hanging on your special guy
my heart went cold but i couldnt ’t cry
i hope he loves you better than I could
tells you all the things that he should
too late for me now

Yo,Can I use this?..It's amazing

Sorry, haven't been on NG in forever. Feel free!

Ah shoester. Someday I hope to hear a happy go lucky song from you. That old relationship really stuck with you it seems and I'm glad it inspired so many great pieces that were likely influenced by those old emotions. But man, I sincerely hope you'll find a new and better flame someday that sparks more positive emotions!

Anyway, great and smooth singing as always, really enjoyed the harmonies in the chorus. Felt there could've been some kind of percussion maybe, just a simple rhythm to back up the ukulele, but it's solid. It was still a nice playing, though all ukuleles sound the same to me. Keep it up and looking forward to that full album!
