Lyrics

Under Your Memory
© 2001 Clever Cat Music (ASCAP)

Day by day the years got away
and then one day we were all alone
Your warm hellos, the sad goodbyes
hours of conversation gone

But I know yesterday you lived here
And I know they can?t take that away

So please cover me with your sweet love
Take my hands lift me up
Stay by me until I?m warm
And your memory will cover me

Saturdays, Sundays too
we?d watch you work the ground
the rains would come and then die down
revealing the crop?s first bloom

And I know the rains will never ease up
and I know to take away this pain would kill me

Repeat Chorus

And we?ll all stand strong together
side by side in stormy weather
Yes we?ll all stand strong together
under your memory
under your memory

Repeat
