Happy Monday!! They’ve been made so much more bearable by Music Monday, hosted by Drew over at THE TATTOOED BOOK GEEK , and it’s a weekly chance to share a favourite song or video!!

Back to Tears for Fears for me today, and one song I’ve been repeat listening to recently is Memories Fade!

There’s only need
I love your need
So much I’m losing me
I cannot see the reason for the Pain
With hungry joy
I’ll be your toy
Just hoping you will play
Without hope my body starts to fail

Memories fade but the scars still linger
Goodbye my friend
Will I ever love again
Memories fade but the scars still linger

I cannot grow
I cannot move
I cannot fell my age
The vice like grip of tension holds me fast
Engulfed by you
What can I do
When History’s my cage
Look foward to a future in the past

The more I talk
The more I say
The less you seem to hear
I’m speechless in a most peculiar way
Your mind is weak
Your need is great
And nothing is too dear
For you to use to take the Pain away
Memories Fade
No don’t pretend you can justify the end
Memories fade but the scars still linger
