On a rainy April morning

When not even the birds would sing

There was only you and me

On that cold, empty street

I waited for you then

And you just turned away

Said there was so much you wanted to do

Than to live in this little town

You may have walked out of my life

But these memories will never go away

They're here to stay and I know

Someday you will too

There's memories that'll make you laugh

And memories that might make you cry

Days you just want to give up

And days you never want to end

Memories that will make you smile

And give you a reason to live

But most of all

There will be memories of us

You left on that cold April morning

With nothing more than

A pair of sneakers

And an empty wallet

Said you wanted to be somebody

That everybody would be proud of

But can't you see

You're somebody that's already admired

Just remember I'll wait for the day

That you come back

But until then

There's memories that'll make you laugh

And memories that might make you cry

Days you just want to give up

And days you never want to end

Memories that will make you smile

And give you a reason to live

But most of all, there's memories of us

Memories of us, here to stay with me

I know that you'll be back someday

And I'll be right here

Right here waiting just for you

Because there's memories of you

And memories of me

Memories that will keep us alive
