Belong (Don't Fade)

about

A mid-2000's inspired alt-rock ballad about the fragility of relationships and memories over time.

lyrics

It's so nice to see you today.
Let's harness a memory that won't fade.
Sometimes love works like a switch -
As fickle and fleeting as an itch.

I belong to this world,
But it won't belong to me.
It may be my oyster,
But I'm not its pearl.
Still I hope you belong to me.
At least for now.
At least for now.

Lasso a memory. Breathe it in.
Heed all emotion come fact or come fiction.
Time tends to distort most our past.
So, while you're still with me, make this last.

I belong to this world,
But it won't belong to me.
It may be my oyster,
But I'm not its pearl.
Still I hope you belong to me.
At least for now.
At least for now.

Don't fade....
