She Burned The Memories
 
Lyrics
VERSE
She built a fire, sat by the phone
The next thing she knew it was coming up dawn
She stood up, looked around
Saw nothing - just her boots on the ground

CHORUS
She's cold and so alone
The fire they had built has surely gone out
These few days were the longest she'd known
And they left her with no doubt
So this morning she burned the memories

VERSE
Their years together, far less than forever
Not what she planned; he'd always be her man
But he left without warning like a man without a spouse
All she left him was his half the house

Repeat CHORUS

SOLO

VERSE
With love now on fire, molten to the core
She said goodbye to what she was before
She turned to see the car in the drive
But whoever it was, she did not recognize

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yes, this cold morning she burned the memories

Description
Short Song Description:
He's gone from home. She doesn't know whether he's coming back. She waits as long as she can. She leaves and doesn't look back.
Long Song Description:
He's gone from home. She doesn't know whether he's coming back. She waits as long as she can. She leaves and doesn't look back. In the process of leaving, she figuratively "burns" the memories. That's probably him driving up as she leaves, but she doesn't recognize whoever it is.
Story Behind the Song:
No back story. Just pure craft.
