Counting On My Memory

Counting On My Memory

Music by M-LAB; Lyrics by Drew Brody

4 days and counting

and 4 long nights
cold nights without you sleeping at my side
memory: conjure me an image to keep me warm
candlelight, red wine
i’ll be ready when you free up your time

i count to ten
and i’m on fire again with thoughts of your body
it’s in my hands now
my grip is tight, it’s in my…

hands like vices close me in
the feel is vivid, but the face is dim

i count to five
i close my eyes to find the face i’ve been chasing
it keeps escaping
instead i hear your voice

saying slow down
what’s worthwhile is worth waiting for
slow down
i’m trying but i’m dying i can’t wait anymore

if i could burn your picture to my mind
and see you when i close my eyes
then maybe i could last another night
if i could learn to keep your image strong
the meantime wouldn’t feel so long
the thought would be enough for me
i’m counting on my memory

shadows on the ceiling i’ve never seen before
heightening the feeling there’s poetry in every corner

i count to four
i want you more than i can ever remember
i need your face now
but i only hear your voice

saying slow down
what’s worthwhile is worth waiting for
slow down
i’m trying but i’m dying i can’t wait anymore

chorus

i count to one
and when i’m done i lose myself in the tremors
