about

I sure enjoy doing online collaborations. This fun song was written by the very talented Dianne Meinke. We became fast friends through our mutual music sites and facebook. When she asked if I'd sing one of her songs, the answer was an easy yes!

You left me here running around
No longer do I feel safe and sound
Stumbling on your favorite blue shirt
Can't keep in all of this hurt
I loved you way too much
Now I cry for your touch
That no longer comes my way
No matter how I beg you to stay
CHORUS
I kept something to make me smile
A picture of you holding me
A memory of what we used to be

Into my bed I crawl alone
I still smell your cologne
Just a week since you said good-bye
All my tears have yet to dry
It feels my body with such distress
Turning me into a total mess
You didn't think what it'd do to me
All you wanted was to be free
CHORUS
I kept something to make me smile
A picture of you holding me
A memory of what we used to be
SOLO
So being stupid
I opened the door
I let you in and cried some more
I closed it shut and I heard you leave
Footsteps walking away from me.
You say we weren't meant to be
How do you dare you say that to me!
I hold my broken heart in my hands
Keep it together the best I can
CHORUS
I kept something to make me smile
A picture of you holding me
A memory of what we used to be
