Liner Notes: 

Prompt: memory/memo
bonus words: place, photograph

Lyrics: 

V1
it is a vivid memory
like a stark photograph
of a place
burned deep in my thoughts
as is the beauty
of her face

oh I will never forget that night
making love through tears
one last time

C
vivid and painful
memories etched
forever in corners
of my heart

vivid and painful
photographs stored
filed unfiltered
from the start

now I can’t forget a face
that fills my memory space

V2
it is a painful memory
like a treasure lost in
a deep sea
burned deep in my thoughts
as are the times she
wanted me

oh I will never forget that year
we loved passionately
without fear

C
vivid and painful
memories etched
forever in corners
of my heart

vivid and painful
photographs stored
filed unfiltered
from the start

now I can’t forget a face
that fills my memory space

Very beautiful nostalgic lyrics and very cool take on the prompt and bonus points.

The line "making love through tears" strikes me as emotionally painful. A single line encompassing opposite extremes. You've captured the feeling of a (fairly) brief but intense relationship well with this lyric.

You got the words in nice and early. Vivid as used is a good way to describe this lyric.

Good Lord, all the songs for this skirmish are so intense. I'm going to start crying over here by the end of them I think!
This one hits extremely close to home. What's beyond extremely actually? Because that's where I'm at. I try to remember that at least I got experience love that intensely at least once in my life, so I suppose that's a good thing, right? As is this reminder of it. The last sections of the verses. God damn it...
Well, enough about me, how are you?
