If Only For Memories
Streetlight Manifesto Lyrics


When you were born, you were not alone
Nothing was carved into the stones
Well, yeah, but don't forget: you heard someone say
"it won't get better than this."
That was the sound of your father
As he held you up to your mother
No one will ever know a love as pure as
The one that you felt right then

They held you up, they held you up
And everybody else, they fell to the wayside
This is the start, a beginning
A prologue to the yarn that you're spinning
One million synonyms will never come
Close to describe the feeling

Don't ever leave. cause if you do, dear
I guarantee that you'll regret the day you did
And you'll miss all the simple things
And you'll see everything you ever loved
Start fading till there's nothing left but dust

And I believe that every broken bone is meant to be
When it heals it will be stronger than it was before
And I see the things that I pretend that I don't see
And I store them in my head, love, if only for memories

So now you're young and you feel alone his wife
Friends, family and all the good things now surrounding you
You can't helping thinking, oh
There's gotta be some more to do
When all the things that you cherished turn
Into burdens and there is no other path to take
You know what you gotta do but you don't know how

They hold you back; they hold you down
And you're gonna feel bad but you know
That you gotta get out. this is your pain
Your dilemma: do you stay in the town where
They raised ya? or will you sail away?
Pull the anchor and go in it for what come what may

You have to leave, cause if you don't, dear
You'll never see the things that you read about in books
You saw the films and you were hooked
But everything you want will come to you
You realize now that you gotta come see this through

And I believe that every broken bone is meant to be
When it heals it will be stronger than it was before
And I see the things that I pretend that I don't
See and I store them in my head, love, if only for memories

I believe that every broken bone is meant to be
When it heals it will be stronger than it was before
And I see the things that I pretend that
I don't see and I store them in my head
Love, if only for memories

LYRICS

When you were born you were not alone
Nothing was carved into the stone quite yet
But don't forget you heard someone say it won't get better than this
That was the sound of your father
As he held you up to your mother
No one will ever know a love as pure as the one that you felt right then

They held you up
They held you up
And everybody else they fell to the wayside
This is the start; the beginning
A prologue to the yarn that you're spinning
A million synonyms
Will never come close to describe the feeling

Don't ever leave
Cause if you do, dear
I guarantee that you'll regret the day you did
And you'll miss all the simple things
And you'll see everything you ever loved
Start fading til' there's nothing left but dust

And I believe
That every broken bone is meant to be
And when it heals it will be stronger than it was before

And I see
The things that I pretend that I don't see
And I store them in my head, love
If only for memories

So now you're young and you feel alone
Despite friends, family, and all the good things now surrounding you
You can't help thinking: "Oh there's gotta be some more to do"

When all the things that you cherish
Turn in to burdens and there is
No other path to take
You know what you gotta do
But you don't know how

They hold you back
They hold you down
And you kinda' feel bad but you know that you gotta get out
This is your pain your dilemma
Do you stay in the town where they raised ya
Or will you sail away
Pull the anchor and go headed for the come what may

You have to leave
Cause if you don't, dear
You'll never see the things you read about in books
You saw the films and you were hooked
But everything you want won't come to you
You realize now that you've gotta go see this through

And I believe
That every broken bone is meant to be
And when it heals it will be stronger than it was before

And I see
The things that I pretend that I don't see
And and I store them in my head, love
If only for memories

I believe
That every broken bone is meant to be
And when it heals it will be stronger than it was before

And I see
The things that I pretend that I don't see
And and I store them in my head, love
If only for memories

I enjoy streetlight purely for the fact that the seem like actual human begins, and they sing about the things we all go through and experience. When I listen to Streetlight I don't hear a band, I hear a bunch of dudes having fun and playing their instruments, singing about life.

When people are going through a tough time a streetlight song is always my go to artist to try to cheer them up

Godmason

This song is speaking to me so hard right now. It's about growing up and moving on from the past. Gaming was once a hobby, but it's now an addiction, numbing me and pissing my time away when I'm dreaming big for myself. I need to cut the line tying me to my addictions and sail into the unknown, the uncertain... the hopeful future.
