Music and lyrics by Matthew Neill Sharp. Produced by Matthew Neill Sharp with Steve Zimmers and Rick Karr for Box Set Authentic.

lyrics

(Your memory kills me, sleepless nights.) Time heals all wounds, they say. I’ve not found things to be that way. Brown eyes taint passing thoughts. Dream it so, makes it not. Your memory kills me on sleepless nights. Glasses cracked, she’s not home. Tried other smiles, still alone. Morning room light reminds me of morning fun time when we made love. Your memory kills me on sleepless nights. I recollect a trip to Santa Cruz: moonlight, pier, drunk on local booze. Wave crashed around you, I explode inside your head. Concrete abuttment, you could have left me for dead. My memory kills me on sleepless nights. Time heals all wounds, they say. I’ve not found things to be that way. Brown eyes taint passing thoughts. Dream it so, makes it not. Your memory kills me on sleepless nights.
