Lyrics

I remember you
You’re the one who made my dreams come true
A few kisses ago

I remember you
You’re the one who said “I love you, too”
Yes, I do, didn’t you know?

I remember, too, a distant bell and stars that fell
Like the rain out of the blue

When my life is through
And the angels ask me to recall
The thrill of them all
Then I shall tell them I remember you

I remember, too, a distant bell and stars that fell
Just like the rain out of the blue

When my life is through
And the angels ask me to recall
The thrill of them all
Then I shall tell them I remember you
