AMANDA MCBROOM lyrics - Make A Memory

AMANDA MCBROOM
"Make A Memory"

I had to go back and sell the place
Now that she was gone
There were so many drawers of memories to go through
And there among the old corsages, the ribbons, and the lace
I came across a photograph of you

You were looking just the same when I saw you yesterday
Your eyes a little wiser now
Your hair a little grey
And in that moment, twenty years of time just washed away
And I took your hand and said these words to you

Would you like to lay your head upon the pillow where my dreams were born
And rest your body on my sheets, so faded now and worn
We could hold each other close
While the night wind plays the trees
You could make a memory with me

I remember football games on cool October nights
And scuffling through the leaves along the park
And holding someone else's hand
And wishing it was you
Walking there beside me in the dark

But there was always someone else playing with your heart
You were way too crazy then, and I was way too smart
I wish that you could tell me now
Is it too late to start?
To try and light that fire once again

Would you like to lay your head upon the pillow where my dreams were born
And rest your body on my sheets, so faded now and worn
We could hold each other close
While the night wind plays the trees
You could make a memory with me

Well we never really touched and we never really kissed
We came so close to loving, but somehow we always missed
In your eyes right now, I see that feeling still exists
And it says you want to stay with me tonight
We could hold each other close
While the night wind plays the trees
You could make a memory with me
Would you like to make a memory with me?
Come on, make a memory with me
