Fading Away

My memories are fading like the dawn

As I try desperately to hold

They are my only like to my past

And they are disappearing so fast

I search for my memories of my dad

And there is nothing to be had

But sometimes when I am out

I can almost hear his vioce whispering on the wind

I jump up and search all about

But no one is there except a friend

When I try to remember his face

It's just like staring into space

It's the same with my good friend

Who was only nine

When his life

Was broght to tragic end

How can they fade like the dawn

While I am trying desperately to hold on

To the only links to my past

Because I don't want them disappearing so fast
