"Sweet memories Flashing very quickly by
Reminding me Giving me reason why
I know that My goal is more than a thought
I'll be there When I teach what I've been taught
You know we've told you before
But you didn't listen then
So you still question why
You didn't listen again
Sweet memories I never thought it would be like this
Reminding me Just how close I came to missing
I know that This is the way for me to go
You'll be there When you know what I know."
