A Memory of You

A Memory of You

I turned the key in the lock tonight
And I walked slowly into the room
Your presence hung like a heavy mist
And I knew death had come too soon

   The stars may be shining for somebody else
   The moon may be giving it's light
   But all that I have is a memory of you
   And I'm lost in a world black as night

Death came too soon to the one that I loved
And now I must travel alone
Just a wandering boy with a broken heart
Whose sweetheart and pal is now gone

I'll travel on through this world of despair
I'll just force myself to go on
I find myself wishing every day
I could be with her in the beyond
