Eddy Arnold - "Chained to a Memory" lyrics

(Jenny Lou Carson)

I could never ever love somebody new
While I'm chained to a memory of you.
'Cause there isn't any room inside my heart dear

Makes no difference if we two are far apart dear
All the whispered words of love would not be true
I could never tell another I belong to them
I could never tell another that I long for them
--- Instrumental ---
'Cause I'm chained to a memory of you.

Maybe time will wear the links away and then dear
But I'll never care for someone else again dear
They will break and set me free to love anew
While I'm chained to a memory of you.

If the world should end tomorrow I'd be satisfied
All my dreams and precious hopes of yesterday have died
'Cause you're gone and there is nothing I can do
Yet I'm chained to a memory of you...
