Story

I REMEMBER—Words and Music by Hal Crook c 2015

Lyrics

I remember—how we liked to tell our story
How I thought you brought the sun—had me won

I remember—how I closed my eyes and loved you
While you got your gamin’ done—on the run

I forgave you—tried to save you
Couldn’t tame you—so I blamed you

Now we’re older—feelin’ colder
Need a shoulder—but it’s over

I remember—how we looked so good together
How I longed to be your pride
How I stood—by your side
How we laughed—how we cried
How we lived—how we died
How we tried…

[Instrumental Solo]

I remember—how we looked so good together
How I longed to be your pride
How I stood—by your side
How we laughed—how we cried
How we lived—how we died
How we tried…

*I remember—you pretender
All that love—made—every night

I remember—I surrendered
Thinking things—might—turn out right

I remember—you defender
All that slick—talk—‘bout your needs

I remember—you offender
All those bold—cold—dirty deeds
(repeat 3x’s to *)

[Coda] I remem—ber—well
