requiem for o.m.m. lyrics – of montreal

when i met you i was just a kid
hadn’t built up my defenses
so i gave my heart completely
vaseline over the lenses
memories don’t go away
i remember every day

i never ever stop wondering
wondering if you still think of us
i don’t need a photograph
cause you’ve never left my mind
no you’ve never left my mind

i remember feeling like a ship
whose captain was too drunk to steer
and you watched as i was sinking
waving sadly from the pier

it’s such a burden to carry ’round
the vestiges of dead dreams
and i don’t want to make a wake out of my life
i just had to let you go

/ of montreal lyrics
