  • It's almost dawn
    And everything's wrong
    I'm wide awake and angry all night long
    Chained to my rockin' chair
    Sometimes it's hard to bear, so hard to bear
    The memory of the laughter that we used to share
    I get lost on the streets

    That we used to walk
    Where we used to find each other in the dark
    Can't find the places where we used to go
    Cause they're nothing like they were before,
    Like they were before
    They're not echoing with laughter anymore

    Once in awhile
    I hear a voice in my head
    I start thinking about some random thing that you said
    How I hate to realize
    That things are how they have to be,
    How they have to be
    I still can't believe what happened to you and me

    You were a friend like no other
    I'm afraid that I'm gonna find
    That the memory of your laughter
    Will never leave my mind

    It's almost dawn
    And everything's wrong
    As one more restless night drags on and on
    Chained to my rockin' chair
    'Till I don't know what to do,
    Don't know what to do
    With the memory of your laughter
    And the ones we knew
    It will never leave my mind

    Everything's wrong
    I'm wide awake and angry all night long
    Chained to my rockin' chair
    As lonely as I can be, as I can be
    With the memory of your laughter for company
    Lonely as I can be
    Memories for company
    Oh
    Oh
    The memory of the laughter that we used to share
