TITLE: Memory
Lyrics and Chords


Midnight, not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory, she is smiling alone
In the lamplight the withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan

/ C - Am - / F - Em - / Dm7 - Am7 - / G7 - C /

Memory, all alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days, I was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again

   Every street lamp seems to beat
   A fatalistic warning
   Someone mutters and a street lamp gutters
   And soon it will be morning

   / Em EmDm Em EmDm / Em CD G - / Em A7 Dmaj7 G / Em A7 D / 

Daylight, I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life and I mustn't give in
When the dawn comes, tonight will be a memory, too
And a new day will begin

{Modulate down 4 semitones}

   Burnt out ends of smoky days
   The stale cold smell of morning
   A street lamp dies, another night is over
   Another day is dawning

Touch me, it's so easy to leave me
All alone with my memory of my days in the sun
If you touch me, you'll understand what happiness is
Look a new day has begun
