Something To Remember



Lyrics

Seems I've played the game for much too long
I let people buy my love and I
Never got to sing my songs for you

I had all my bets laid all on you
Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose
In the game of love you pay your dues

Say that happiness cannot be measured
And a little pain can bring you all life's little pleasures
What a joke

I was not your woman, I was not your friend
But you gave me something to remember
No other man said "Love yourself"
Nobody else can
We weren't meant to be
At least not in this lifetime
But you gave me something to remember
I hear you still say "Love yourself"

I had all my bets laid all on you
Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose
In the game of love I've paid my dues

Guess I'm waiting for my place in your sun
Wish I had the chance to know you and it wasn't stormy weather
What a shame, who's to blame

I was not your woman, I was not your friend
But you gave me something to remember
No other man said "Love yourself"
Nobody else can
We weren't meant to be
At least not in this lifetime
But you gave me something to remember
I hear you still say "Love yourself"

Album



Song

Being the title track of the ballads collection Something To Remember might make it seem like a new song, but it is in fact a song from I'm Breathless. The appearance of the song on the collection album is probably due to its convenient title. However it was never released as a single.
