I found a box of memories, read a letter
Dropped a tear where you signed your name
And turning the page
Smearing the ink in the "Love Always"
Girl I always start this way
Then I end up in a bottle screaming out your name
And punching the walls carrying on like I've gone insane

And in the mirror I can see the man who just shook his head with no remorse

Watched an angel crying tears packing all of her things
As she walked out the door

Cause there ain't nothing like a memory
When it's coming on strong like a hurricane
How can love like that just up and walk away
It's killing me baby
It's got me pouring up another drink
Bourbon's hitting me hard like a freight train
With my back against the wall or on my knees
When the worst of your memory gets the best of me

I remember it all too well
Riding 441 down to Milledgeville
And crossing the bridge as the sun set on lake
I couldn't wait to see your smile but all I saw was tears in your pretty
Eyes
And that said it all, it was all downhill from there
And I remember you saying "baby please don't give up on me"
Ahh but baby this stubborn man is gonna lie in the bed he made

Cause there ain't nothing like a memory
When it's coming on strong like a hurricane
How can love like that just up and walk away
It's killing me baby
It's got me pouring up another drink
Bourbon's hittin me hard like a freight train
With my back against the wall or on my knees
When the worst of your memory gets the best of me

Cause there ain't nothing like a memory
When it's coming on strong like a hurricane
How can love like that just up and walk away
It's killing me baby
It's got me pouring up another drink
Bourbon's hittin me hard like a freight train
With my back against the wall or on my knees
When the worst of your memory gets the best of me

Whoooaaa gets the best of me
