Make It Like a Memory

 Didn't I like to hold you in my hand
 I was doing you no harm
 I made you understand
 All my life I've been that way
 It happened long ago
 Didn't I pray to love you through the night
 I was dreaming wide awake
 The early morning light shine on me
 A sorry state
 My heart has told me so
 And the storm clouds gather overhead
 No shelter we can share
 Lie down in my flower bed I got no control
 I would sell my soul
 To be there
 So forever do or die
 We just belong
 Kiss hello, no wave goodbye
 And the heat is stronger
 For the moment when we touch
 No wind can hold me
 Come from loving you too much
 And the nights are longer
 Make it like a memory
 Make it like a dream unreal
 Make it like we never met
 But I can't forget
 It's how I feel
 Make it like a memory
 Take away the sound and the sight
 There'll never be another love
 With the power of, you and I
 Maybe I'm wrong to hold you in my hand
 I believed you when you lied
 I tried to understand
 All my life, I've been that way
 It happened long ago
 Make it like a memory
 Make it like a dream unreal
 Make it like we never ever met
 But I can't forget
 It's how I feel
 Make it like a memory
 Take away the sound and the sight
 There'll never be another love
 With the power of, you and I
