Sunday Morning Song of The Moment - 'Bittersweet Memory' by: Blue Merle


Today's pick was a tough one. There were quite a few songs I wanted to pick from on this album. Last year, on XPN I heard a song by an up and coming band, Blue Merle. I was sucked in. I promptly purchased their CD and it was on repeat for a few months. I don't know that anything off of their album 'Burning In The Sun' made it on to mainstream radio (like mainstream radio is worth listening to - see I'm a music snob) or not. But they're worth a good, heartfelt listen. The entire album is a good one. So, without further ado here is the latest installment:
Well the morning was wrapped
In a blanket of clouds
And I've been out driving
Since quarter to two
My body is aching
And my feelings are numb
From the bittersweet memory
All tangled in you

There's cars that are cruising
With nowhere to go
And the rain in the streets
Makes 'em shine good as new
I wish I could ride one
Right out of this town
And away from the memory
That's tangled in you
The bittersweet memory
All tangled in you


There's friends I go out with
And friends that I know
But lately it feels
Like there's nothing to do
My best friend just packed up
And left with her lover
And left me alone
With a memory of you
A bittersweet memory
All tangled in you

So I'm packing my things
And I'm moving back home
This town aint' done nothing
But cripple my soul
And saying goodbye
Should be easy to do
But a bittersweet memory
Is tangled in you
A bittersweet memory's
All tangled in you

Well the morning was wrapped
In a blanket of clouds
And I've been out driving
Since quarter to two
