Name of Song: Memories that linger

Do you have a mind,
That’s kind to your needs,
Or does it rebel
And haunt you with deeds.

Deeds of desire,
You hope never known,
A time when you felt
Just this once, be a clone.

Or was it a time,
When you didn’t control,
Your urge to get mad
But you lost your own soul.

Chorus
Memories that linger,
Persisting through time,
But I wasn’t myself,
But they won’t leave my mind.
Urges so secret,
Don’t tell anyone,
So I withhold myself,
Now the haunting begun.

You can be right,
Or decide you are wrong,
Then you’ll fight with your nature,
And become much less strong.
Spirits are holy,
God loves within,
Love your own self
Love your own sin.

I hope you do get
What I’m trying to say,
Love your own self,
Admire your own way.
