“A Lover and a Memory” feat. Mike Posner

I was in the studio with him. During this period of time, he was making music that was a bit darker. This is pre-beard Mike Posner. That era of music he was making, I think he actually didn’t even release a lot of his other songs, because he kind of decided to go in a different direction. I’m glad I was able to take this song from him and turn it into “A Lover and A Memory,” because it’s got this dark feeling to it in the way Mike sings it. It’s so vulnerable and so emotional. He is a singer-songwriter. He really sings from the heart, and this song really cuts right to that place. Lyrically, you can feel it. Vocally, you can feel it. I did my best with really trying to compliment that musically on the production side. I absolutely love this song. It’s one of the most heartfelt songs on the album. When I reached out to him, he was working on a couple of different songs, and that was one. I’m so drawn to this song, just the vulnerability in how he’s singing it. At the end of the day, it’s just a testament to what we try to do as producers and musicians; really cut through all the noise and get to the core of what we’re trying to say. The sad songs are the ones that make us feel and allow us to be vulnerable.

“A Lover And A Memory” (feat. Mike Posner) Lyrics:

(Verse 1)
I been drinking, I been smoking
I been waiting, I been hoping that there’s still some chance
You and me can find a reason to believe in
All them weekends that we used to have

(Pre-Chorus)
You’re pretending that you don’t care
So I’m doing the same
I love you more when you’re taken
Oh Lord, you’re good at this game

(Chorus)
Don’t do me dirty, show me some mercy
Darling, please lay down your weaponry
How did we end up somewhere between a
Lover and a memory?
‘Cause I don’t believe in a halfway heart
And you gave me all of my favorite scars
How did we end up somewhere between a
Lover and a memory?

(Post-Chorus)
Lover and a memory
Lover and a memory

(Verse 2)
Watched you do this, treat me ruthless, make excuses
When the truth is that the thoughts still come
Now and then when you’re in private
You can sit up in the silence, and it sounds like drums

(Pre-Chorus)
I’m pretending I don’t care
So you’re doing the same
You like me more when I’m taken
Oh Lord, I’m good at this game

(Chorus)
Don’t do me dirty, show me some mercy
Darling, please lay down your weaponry
How did we end up somewhere between a
Lover and a memory?
‘Cause I don’t believe in a halfway heart
And you gave me all of my favorite scars
How did we end up somewhere between a
Lover and a memory?

(Post-Chorus)
Lover and a memory
Lover and a memory
