IT'S GOOD TO REMEMBER

It's good to remember sometimes,
the ways that we once knew.
I know we can't linger behind,
but it's good sometimes to review.
No - I'm not the same as I was then,
and, darling, neither are you.

There's a sharper line to our border,
and a softer flow within.
We can't hold the flowing waters.
We can't go back there again,
and memory's a fading recorder.
While we have it, let's give it a spin.

Chorus
Whether drifting on wind, or rowing the River,
merged with the street flow, or the Road to Forever,
Life is a weaver of endless designs.
Sometimes the old ones visit the mind.
It's good to remember sometimes.

Oh let us remember sometimes,
the ways that we once knew.
Let yesterday flow through the mind,
sorting the wrong from the true.
No - I'm not the same as I was then,
and darling - neither are you.

We both know we've got to move on,
and much of the past has to go.
We can't stop to look back too long,
but review can lighten our load.
We'll carry the best in a song,
leave the sorrow, and move down the Road.

Chorus
Whether drifting on wind, or rowing the River,
merged with the street flow, or the Road to Forever,
Life is a weaver of endless designs.
Sometimes the old ones visit the mind.
It's good to remember sometimes.
