LYRICS:
IF YOU REMEMBER ME:

When you remember me,
if you remember me,
I hope you see it’s not the way I want it to be,
oh I’ll be with you now,
but wherever you go,
my love goes with you.

Keep on smilin’
keep on shinnin’
even though you know you want to cry

I tried to love you.
Lookin’ in my eyes,
you saw promises and lies,
too many times.

When you remember me,
if you remember me,
I hope you see it’s not the way I want it to be,
oh I’ll be with you now,
but wherever you go,
my love goes with you.

I’ll be with you,
keep believing,
some things even time can’t come between,
and if you blame me,
try to realize,
there were promises and lies too many times.

When you remember me,
if you remember me,
I hope you see it’s not the way I want it to be,
oh I’ll be with you now,
but wherever you go,
my love goes with you,
my love goes with you.
