I got the picture that you gave to me
And it's signed with love just like it used to be
The only thing different, the only thing new
I got the picture, he's got you

I got the records that we used to share
And they still sound the same as when you were here
The only thing different, the only thing new
I got the records and he's got you

I got your memory
Or has it got me?
I really don't know
But I know it won't let me be

I got your class ring that proves you care
And it still looks the same as when you gave it dear
The only thing different, the only thing new
I got these little things and he's got you

I got your memory
Or has it got me?
I really don't know
But I know it won't let me be

I got the picture that you gave to me
And it's signed with love just like it used to be
The only thing different, the only thing new
I got these little things, he's got you


He's got
He's got
He's got
He's got
He's got
He's got you
