He was the Congregation's vagrant
With an unrequited love.
When your passion's exultation,
Then finding refuge is not enough.
She was the youngest of the family
And the last to be let go.
They decided they would try
And make it on their own.

Oh, memories, where'd you go?
You were all I've ever known.
How I miss yesterday.
And I let it fade away.
Where'd you go?
Oh, oh, oh, oh.
Oh, oh, oh, oh.

When July became December
Their affection fought the cold,
But they couldn't quite remember
What inspired them to go.
And it was beautifully depressing
Like A Streetcar Named Desire.
They were fighting for their love
That started growing tired.

Oh, memories, where'd you go?
You were all I've ever known.
How I miss yesterday.
And I let it fade away.
Don't fade away.

Money lost momentum
And the bills were piling high.
Then the smile, it finally faded
From the apple of their eye.
And they were young and independent,
And they thought they had it planned.
Should've known right from the start
You can't predict the end.

Oh, memories, where'd you go?
You were all I've ever known.
How I miss yesterday.
And how I let it fade away.

Oh, memories, where'd you go?
You were all I've ever known.
How I miss yesterday.
And how I let it fade away.
Don't fade away.

    I believe this song is about the boy and girl falling in love and as their relationship grows and develops they realize that they may not be perfect together as they had originally thought. The boy is looking back and wishing for the good times they had, he is wondering where they went wrong in this relationship and why it isn't as fun and as easy as it was in the beginning and in the end they finally accept that they gave it their best shot and it was hard realizing this but they have to let it go.

    I think what the song means is that, these two people belonged together but there was no way for them to live in peace. And they grew up and decided to finally try it, and the fought for their love and it lasted a while, but eventually they forgot what the were fighting for. Now all they have of it are the memories of their love, and they want to hold on to those with all they have.
