Me First And The Gimme Gimmes – The Way We Were lyrics

Memories
Light the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memπries
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
Whatπs too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So itπs the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were

Every day was like
A gift of flowers
Ribbon-wrapped
And waiting to be seen
Eagerly we opened all the hours
Then what happened happened

Memories
May be beautiful and yet
Whatπs too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So itπs the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were
The way we were
