My memories creep all around me
Like vines on an old brick wall
Some are sweet, some are sour
But they all make me feel so small
Lost in a sea of nostalgia.
Some memories keep me up at night
Haunting my dreams with all their might
They tug at my heart and won’t let go
Leaving me restless, filled with woe
Oh, how I wish they’d just let me go.
But then there are dreams of the future
A place where my heart takes nurture
Where the sun shines bright and the sky is blue
There all my worries are bid adieu
A place where my dreams will surely come true.
