You're Only a Memory Away

When a loved one is missing, we only have our memory to go by.

You're Only a Memory Away

I thought that I lost you,
When you said goodby.
I missed you, what more can I say.
But now I'm contented,
Since I realized,
You're only a memory away.

A memory has kept us together,
With all of the love we once knew.
We've shined through all kinds of weather,
And I've lived with the memory of you.

You told me it's over
And left me alone.
I thought I would die on that day.
You said I'd forget you
Before very long,
But you're only a memory away.
