Allow Myself To Remember

Wednesday Words

Original version :
Allow myself to remember
The things I try so hard to forget 
The way you smelled
And the way you’d touch my hand
The fondest memories I recall
The warm fuzzy feelings
And the way I’d smile 
When I picture your face
-vs-
New version:
Allow myself to remember
The things I try so hard to forget 
Like the way you’d get so excited
On a warm summer evening
And I still hear your voice
Echoing in my head
Whispering all those words 
I wish you had never said

I don’t know if the new version is better than the old version but it ranks higher simply because it isn’t the old version. “The way you smelled” is a bad line. Sure, there are some sensory memory emotions loaded into that line but it’s inherently dumb. The new verse feels better.

You can hear it on YouTube here.
