In my mind are memories of you
Rushing through my head, times we knew.
I see your face at every turn
Your fond embrace I do so yearn.
Was that your voice that I just heard?
I just tell myself, stop being absurd.
That face in the crowd, is it you I see?
A fleeting glance, no, it must be me.
You’re there when I sleep and when I awake.
Your memory haunts me, make no mistake.
The nights are so long and daytime so grey
Your absence so heavy on my mind it does weigh.
I wish that you’d come back and make amends
My hand of friendship raises, to you it extends.
Let’s forget the past and all that was wrong
Just come back to me right here you belong.
If I promise one thing, it’s that I’ll be true
Just one thing I’d miss, distant memories of you.
