Donna Summer – The Way We Were lyrics

Spoken:
Well you ladies out there
You know what I'm
I'm talkin' 'bout ya
But you wanna know something?
Did you ever try to remember or
Or just place up a memory in your mind
And it always seems so far away
So hard to find

Memories
Light the corners of my mind
Misty water-color memories
Of the way we were

Scattered pictures
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
(oh yesterday) 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 change to do it all again

Spoken:
Tell me, how many of you would live your lives again
I would too
You girls?

Memories
May be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
And so it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember

The way we were
The way we were
Whoaaahhhh
