still in my head

still in my head

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

an old love brought back to me by Noel's song suggestion.

"
I will never forget
who you were to me
or how much it hurt
when you didn't say
goodbye --

did you know
I ended up with him?
you are the reason
I ended up broken
and messed up --

all the times I picked up
the phone when I was alone;
the time the woman
on the other end said
"you just don't give up do you?"

You are the best
of the worst things
that ever happened to me.
and after all these years
your number is
         still in my head.

Sometimes we just can't get those numbers out of our heads. I know I have carried them around for years. It is a sad, sad way to have to live, but it is going on even as we speak.

He awaits, breathlessly.
Beautifully written, expressing that long lost feeling. The best I can say to this are the opening words to the song you chose, so fitting.
"Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the phone 'cause I can't fight it anymore.
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time."
