I'll Remember You


(sung to You Were Meant For Me by Jewel)

I hear the chalk, it's wearin' thin
I'm moving on from where I've been
I earned my A's, I earned my handshakes too
I got my high school diploma, and my yearbook too

I crack some jokes and see a smile on your face
I'm finally leaving from this Bayview place
Wipe the tears off of my cheeks
Don't have regrets anymore
Wondering what university has in store

'Cause memories last so long
Even after you're gone
I know, those were the days
But now I've got to move on
Don't forget me
'Cause I'll remember you

E-mailed my father but he hasn't replied
He later called me back, but my phoneline was tied
So I jumped in my car and went out on a cruise
I head for the pub, I'm dependent on booze

Took off my coat and then noticed a stain
I washed it off but it just wasn't the same
'Cause it was dry clean only, and I made it bad
I was so depressed, oh so sad

'Cause memories last so long
Even after you're gone
I know, those were the days
But now I've got to move on
Don't forget me
'Cause I'll remember you

I'm minding my own business, just like a mime
Besides what am I to say if I'm asked what's on my mind
Same old story, not much to say
Though I think of you every day

I relive the memories that I found so fond
Our days together, our unbreakable bond
I pick up the yearbook and lay myself down
(And then) I read my messages and the pics that surround

It's late at night so I hop into bed
I'm fast asleep now, a sleepy head
I'm drifting away beneath the pale moonlight
And I'll be dreaming of you tonight

'Cause memories last so long
Even after you're gone
I know, those were the days
But now I've got to move on
Don't forget me
'Cause I'll remember you
