Cats Musical – Grizabella lyrics

You see the border of her coat is torn
And stained with sand.
And you see the corner of her eye
Twist like a crooked pin.

(instrumental break)

[Verse 1]
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.

[Verse 2]
Every streetlamp seems to beat a fatalistic warning.
Someone mutters, and the streetlamp gutters
And soon it will be morning.

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.
