I will remember everything
The way the light fell on the buildings
The way my heart would skip a beat
When I walked unfamiliar streets
Maps falling at my feet
I will remember every thought
And every postcard that I bought
Of every church and every tower,
And every staircase that I climbed
Out of breath and out of time

I will remember every taste that’s on my tongue
It’s all so sweet when you are free and you are young
When you are free and you are young.

I will remember everything
My life is like a cubist painting
All at once with nothing waiting
Nothing locked into its place
A smile and a frown can share one space

I will remember every word
And every sound I ever heard
And every rumble and every roar
And every blessing and every curse
What made things better, made them worse.

I will remember every taste that’s on my tongue…

I will remember every sign
And every time I crossed the line
And every time I took a chance
And closed my eyes, with open arms, began to dance

The stars, they will still shine when I am gone
The earth continuing to orbit round the sun
When I am just a distant memory to anyone
To anyone
To anyone
