LYRICS: Buju Banton feat. John Legend - Memories


BUJU BANTON

What shall I do, you confess to me that you feel the same way too girl
girl come forth and rock my world

JOHN LEGEND
I guess I am not over you 
like I thought I was
guess I was fooling myself
cause I’m still in love
still in love with you woman,
I still have dreams of you and I
Can’t get over you woman
no matter how I try

It’s driving me crazy, 
thoughts of you with another man
I am losing my lady 
so sad I am, 
I guess I’m not over you
Like I thought I was, 
I guess I was fooling myself
cuz I’m still in love

Even when I try to myself the things I say 
wasn’t meant to be this way
love is not game to play 
yes we went our separate ways 
but the memories
even when I try to myself the things I say 
wasn’t meant to be this way
love is not game to play 
yes we went our separate ways but the memories

BUJU BANTON
Treasure yuh body 
but I cherish yuh mind
Even though its complicated which is most of the time
A life without your love aint working out fine
Perception and reality clearly define
A bet you never know the love mi have inna mi heart
We mek simple mistakes tear us apart
Forgetting where we coming from and how it all start
Using harsh words, bitter arrows and sparks
we live inna di same house and we nah talk
we used to be on and now we’re totally off
oh I wish this was never our past, oh there is no love lost, know that

JOHN LEGEND
Even when I try to myself the things I say 
wasn’t meant to be this way
love is not game to play 
yes we went our separate ways 
but the memories
even when I try to myself the things I say 
wasn’t meant to be this way
love is not game to play 
yes we went our separate ways but the memories

BUJU BANTON
Over many moons since we part
but the memories remain with the love inna mi heart
care not how many friendships I start 
this spot weh yuh touch still tender and soft
to be honest I do miss the fires and sparks
but I rather to live on rooftop or somewhere in a park
but where did we mess up realize the blame,
she left me a message explaining her pain
she said, I tried even avoid surrounding distractions and outside noise but we both make mistakes 
and we both lied oh and now here we are.

JOHN LEGEND
Even when I try to myself the things I say 
wasn’t meant to be this way
love is not game to play 
yes we went our separate ways 
but the memories
even when I try to myself the things I say 
wasn’t meant to be this way
love is not game to play 
yes we went our separate ways but the memories
