lyrics

Dear memory

You were sitting down on the floor
Trembling with the riddle in your mind
Still the crowd begged you for a little more
Don’t you think it’s time you leave it all behind

And then I saw it in your eyes
Tried to hide it deep inside your heart
But in the words I heard the silent cries
covered by the whisper of your art

Dear memory
Write a song for me
Dear memory

Youth and age, joined in harmony
Again it took you by surprise
A bitter sweet ancient symphony
In water colour paint that never dries

Dear memory
Write a song for me
Dear memory

You were sitting down on the floor
Trembling with the riddle in your mind
Still the crowd begged you for a little more
Don’t you think it’s time you leave it all behind
