John Kay – Sweet Memories lyrics

Words and Music by John Kay

When you say that you want me forever
And you don't want me just while I stay
Do you mean that it's always or never
Can we not share the joys of today
There's a chance that tomorrow I'm leaving
There's a chance of a lonely goodbye
But I've learned long go it ain't easy
And it hurts so much more not to cry

So I'll build my tomorrows on sweet memories
Of the times we chased away the sorrow
Than to live a lifetime of long emptiness
And to bear the dreams I had to borrow

Well if you don't believe me girl, you'll try in vain
To get things guaranteed in life, except heartaches and pain
And though you try to bind your joy with loving chains
Happiness will come and go like sunshine and rain

Repeat Chorus

I remember the times full of pleasure
That I shared with the women I knew
There are moments that I'll always treasure
They were special, each one, just like you
So let's not play games with each other
For the time may come soon when we'll part
And though we're no longer together
I will carry you here in my heart
