Barbra Streisand – Memory – 1981


    Not a sound from the pavement
    Has the moon lost her memory
    She is smiling alone
    In the lamplight
    The withered leaves collect at my feet
    And the wind begins to moan
    All alone in the moonlight
    I can smile happy your days (I can dream of the old days)
    Life was beautiful then
    I remember the time I knew what happiness was
    Let the memory live again
    Every street lamp seems to beat
    A fatalistic warning
    Someone mutters and the street lamp gutters
    And soon it will be morning
    I must wait for the sunrise
    I must think of a new life
    And I mustn’t give in
    When the dawn comes
    Tonight will be a memory too
    And a new day will begin

    Burnt out ends of smoky days
    The still cold smell of morning
    A street lamp dies, another night is over
    Another day is dawning
    Touch me,
    It is so easy to leave me
    All alone with the memory
    Of my days in the sun
    If you touch me,
    You’ll understand what happiness is
    Look, a new day has begun
