The Way We Were / Memories

The Manhattans


Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh, wee

Wish that I could wind
Like a spiral stair through time
With your body next to mine
Warm and satisfying

Wish that I could catch
A night train to the past
Climb aboard and hear you ask
Darlin', come inside, ooh ooh yeah

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
And if we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me would we, could we

Memories
Light the corners of my mind
Misty water colored memories
For the way we were

Ooh ooh
Scattered pictures
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were, yeah...yeah

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
And if we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me would we, could we

Memories
May be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember
I swear to God, we simply choose to forget

So it's the laughter
We will remember
Whenever we remember

The way
The way we were

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh yeah yeah
Ooh, wee

Wish that I could wind
Like a spiral stair through time
With your body next to mine
Warm and satisfying

Memories
Doo doo doo doo doo doo
Ooh
