My Morning Jacket - Only Memories Remain Lyrics




Only memories remain
Only memories remain

For a time, there by the sea
There was only you and me
In a land that time forgot
You uttered sweet forget-me-nots
And you know I never will
But sometimes life has other ideas
And though we both know how much it meant
Now only memories remain

Only memories remain
Only memories remain
Only memories remain, yeah yeah
Only memories remain

The names and places have all been changed
But the identity remains the same
As time and space do what they will
The spirit, so vogue, can never be killed
Our earthly bodies will surely fall
But the love we share outlives us all
What's done is done at the end of the day
But still, those memories remain

Only memories remain, yeah yeah
Only memories remain
Only memories remain, yeah yeah
Only memories remain

Yeah, only remain, only remain, oh
Yeah, only remain, only remain, oh
Oh
Yeah, only remain, only remain, oh (only memories remain)
Yeah, only remain, only remain, oh (only memories remain, only memories remain)
Yeah, only remain, only remain, oh (only memories remain, only memories remain)

  72. Dawn Shepherd

    Thanks for introducing me American Dad!

  73. Diana

    This song is too appropriate when you've lost or grown apart from that life-changing friend with whom you crafted the most beautiful memories.

    The Countess

    Diana Or a lost love ....

  74. Ana Jacomini

    sex song

  75. Pilo Antimo

    Lowkey, this helps my acid trips, has me relaxed and in thought.

    Pilo Antimo sammee

  76. Cesar Gomez

    😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

  77. Andrei Gorgos

    Such a beautiful song, to me it sounds very much like Glen Hansard's - Maybe Not Tonight. Check that out, soul food.

  78. Crayfish

    classic!

  79. Dave Cano

    May possibly be the best song ever recorded...everything's perfect. It makes me nostalgic for the one that got away. Well-
    Done Jim.

  80. the light one

    thank you for this it helped me to get over my x

  81. Narcoleptic

    Sounds even better Slowed down.

  82. tailon OwO

    GREAT SONG IS WONDERFUL Y BEATIFUL

  83. David Dolen

    Only they do!

  84. Rob P.

    I loved this song right from the moment I first heard it. It made me feel, right from jump, the way the AIR songs from " VIRGIN SUICIDES" soundtrack songs made me feel upon first hearing them....a kind of sweet melancholy that is more endearing than painful. The third verse of this song is sheer genius! Anyone that has loved and lost someone will feel the distant pang of remembrance after hearing that verse. Beautiful song by an incredible band!

  85. rheanna lynn

    i tripped so hard to this last night

  86. gxd000

    how did I spend all of last year without listening to this?????

    Knightscroft Squire-Muldoon

    say ten mahgeetah's and your sins will be forgiven my son.

    00utofcpt

    in this case forgive me ! i have also sinned :( i didn't know last year they released this found out in may this year

  87. Cameron Cotroneo

    Such an incredible song; it makes so many emotions swell up inside me. So many memories of lovers lost, old days of innocence and carefree living. The worst part about "the good ol' days" is that you don't even know that are living in that moment until you realize it in hindsight.

    Shirley Fluharty

    Cameron Cotroneo how rite yo you are! love this song

    Kaneda Mikami

    It's about rebirth.

  88. Gjabrielle Guterrez

    Fuckkkkkkkkkkkk. Right in the feels.
    Paramount, when one realizes the importance of love, and letting go, and what we choose to cling to.
    ~*sigh*~ such is life.

    Meyzen76

    Perfectly said!

    Jesus Meneses

    Hmu i need that energy in my life

  89. Denisse Gutierrez

    excellent song!!!!!!!!!!

  90. Héctor Alejandro Bautista Bretón

    Beatiful song!!! i'm going to soy.

  91. big smoke

    Do they do concerts I wanna go to one before I die who else with me

    00utofcpt

    yes they do , i'm with you BUT unlike most of their fans , i'm from Romania, so it's harder for me to go to a concert .they dont visit europe that often

    brandon242

    seen them too many times to count..if you like live music they are the best today has to offer.

    Alex P

    they live stream a decent amount of their shows too, check out tourgigs.com

    Gent Bar

    Juyah/ Amy forcing food down i have twice lot of energgy

    Lawrence Simon

    They are the best live concert out there, if you are lucky to see them with a totally dedicated jacket audience it is one of the greatest experiences you can have

  92. Walker D

    my caption for this song would be "surfing a comet trail across space"

  93. Steven Reese

    I'm going through a marriage separation and I found this song the day I moved out of my wife and I's house . #CripplingDepression

    David Dolen

    Steven Reese. me too

    big smoke

    Steven Reese rip

  94. Bobby DeSimone

    Such a beautiful song. My only wish is that the haunting strings came in earlier.

  95. Chris G

    Holy shit

  96. MrDonimal

    RIP my buddy Jack Galvin, love and miss you buddy and all are other lost loved ones

    missmyvinny
