A bit of a departure from how I usually write - doesn't rhyme...as much~

Just memories now

I’d wait outside for your car to come
Down our old dirt road
Watching the rooster tail of dust
And your headlights getting bright

I’d pour 2 glasses of wine
One for me, one for you
I said “Baby how’s your day”
I was so happy you were home

There was that time you were in Kansas City
You’d call me every night
We’d watch American Idol and guess the winners
together over the telephone

Chorus:
They’re all just memories now
It’s all that’s left
It’s all I have
To remember you by
All just memories now
Dim echoes of laughter
Haunting the house

Every New Year’s Eve
We lay in bed and read from that notebook
That we wrote in all of those funny things
We said during the previous year
And those nights we spent dancing
To our favorites tunes in the living room
Not caring if the neighbors saw us
Twirling round and round and round

The highest we ever got
Was Memorial Day on top
On Mount Evans 14,000 feet up
Where you made my dreams come true
When you asked me to spend my life with you

Chorus:
They’re all just memories now
It’s all that’s left
It’s all I have
To remember you by
All just memories now
Dim echoes of laughter
Haunt the house


And that road trip to Pensacola
And the tour we took through Graceland
And the night we walked on Beale Street
With umbrella drinks in our hands
That first house we built together
The smell of our first new car
And the time you found that little dog
And brought him in from our backyard

They’re all just memories now
