"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."
