Memories Lyrics

Play "Memories"
on Amazon Music

When I wake up to your footsteps
As you get up out of bed
They make a song that sounds so simple
But it dances in my head
A melody so perfect
That it gets me through the day
And the thought of us forever
Is one that will never go...

    Shawn is talking about a girl. It is his first real relationship and he's explaining that he has to let go, but it was good while it lasted. He was saying they were just 'Memories'. And aww its so sad like why Shawn? You good?

    I think this song is about him writing songs. Because when he says carved in stone i think this means that people have heard it. And by pictures on the wall it means like the gold records that you get for songs.

    If you listen to the song closely he says “i cant ever let you go Lets write our story and lets sing our song lets hang our picrures in the wall all these precious moments we carved in stone are only memories after all.” i dont know fully of this is what its about but im just making the assumption that the memories that they carved in stone was a grave stone ans shes dead.

    I believe it's about the first real relationship with he thought could last forever. This girl gave him hope that he could have that kind of forever relationship, so he doesn't want to let that hope go along with the girl. By the end of the song he realizes that even though his first real relationship is ending he doesn't have to let go of that hope of being with someone for the long haul.

    I think he may be talking about the time when he was apart of magcon.

    I believe Shawn may be referring to the old magcon and when they broke up. Which explains why he says "their only memories afterall"

    this song is him pretty much saying, Yeah we have some good days and some bad days, but who cares? they turn out to be just memories. Live in the moment, not looking for the future.
