Memories

by Michael Crawford
(Arlington, Wa USA)

I walk with you, I talk with you
and feel you don't care
you look around, find what's new
you ask me what is right and fair

Chorus
memories cannot be taken
memories can hold truth
memories cannot be forsaken
memories taken us back to our youth

there must be more words to say
words I can understand
some words I say, I should delay
this was not planned, oh not planned

I hold your hand, your hand feels cold
your eyes look into mine, so deep
I told you I will be with you till old
you whisper in my ear, I hear your words in your sleep


Chorus
memories cannot be taken
memories can hold truth
memories cannot be forsaken
memories taken us back to our youth


we walked so far, time to turn around
time to say more, oh from the heart
this is such a small town
we need to stop and hold each other, a new start


Chorus
memories cannot be taken
memories can hold truth
memories cannot be forsaken
memories taken us back to our youth


stores are closed, where can we go?
we can go and see our friends
or go down by the river where the water flows slow
we can talk about how we can make amends


so many memories we hold on to
don't let them get away
they can be old memories or new
even when we talked so long at the cafe


Chorus
memories cannot be taken
memories can hold truth
memories cannot be forsaken
memories taken us back to our youth


Chorus
memories cannot be taken
memories can hold truth
memories cannot be forsaken
memories taken us back to our youth
