The Way We Were

Memories
Like the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored
Memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were

Can it be that
It was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we, could we

Memories may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter we will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were, the way we were

I would not replace
Or erase all our memories
Lessons given to us we learned on unselfishly
So take this moment
Take an extra breath
With respect
For our time

Can't rewind
What's just meant to be
But now we gotta move on
We gotta stay strong
Celebrating us all night long
No regrets, don't forget
That our time together
Was truly beautiful
These memories will live forever

Memories may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter we will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were
