The song Memories began around the chorus strings that Matt Coker wrote, but I cannot honestly say what brought on Memories when I wrote the lyrics.
What is scary and ironic is that I seemingly predicted the end of my marriage, and everything I would feel. And I did it 8 months before it even happened.
This song will forever send chills
down my spine because of it's lyrical predictions.
Memories has always been a hit with the fans, and every crowd we have ever played this song to... has loved it. It is one of my all time favorite Provision songs ever, and one of the ones I like to perform
live the most.
Comparable to Could've Had It All when performed live, we always bring the energy and the emotion with this one.
My favorite part about playing this one on stage though, is how many of our fans will always sing it back to us. Proof that almost anyone can relate to the story in this song.
From 2001 to 2006, Memories was one of the most frequent Provision songs performed live.

Another restless night, am I the one who’s blind.
Can I not see your realm of infidelity.
No call upon the phone, no letter to be found.
Your whereabouts tonight remain a mystery.
My friends are telling lies, I’ve come to realize.
Their sentiments will amount to nothing.
I see it in your eyes, it comes as no surprise.
Why should I question the end, it’s coming.
I’m tired of being rejected, and crying.
Till you come home.
I shouldn’t feel this neglected, disrespected.
When I’m all alone.
There’s not a thing you can say to make me stay this time. So rely on the memories.
You can cry on the memories.
Please take a moment now, you have to hear me out.
To understand these feelings inside my head.
You have to comprehend, I’m living in your sin.
With careless movements and no regrets.
Everything you thought we shared, this
love has gone nowhere.
Don’t change the subject at hand with excuses.
It’s time that we move on, no looking back this time.
Our destiny as one becomes an execution.
