memory

Cats - Ran from October 7, 1982 until September 10, 2000, making it Broadway's second-longest running musical, second only to Phantom of the Opera (Jan. 26, 1988 - present day). What do Phantom and Cats have in common? They were both written by that musical genius: Andrew Lloyd Webber.


Memory, turn your face to the moonlight
Let your memory lead you
Open up, enter in
If you find there the meaning of what happiness is
Then a new life will begin

Memory, all alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days
I was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again

Burnt out ends of smokey days
The stale cold smell of morning
The streetlamp dies, another night is over
Another day is dawning

Daylight, I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in
When the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin

Sunlight, through the trees in the summer
Endless masquerading
Like a flower as the dawn is breaking
The memory is fading 


Touch me, it's so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun
If you touch me you'll understand what happiness is
Look, a new day has begun 

Lovely, lovely song. I feel Webber-ish today. Anyone want to sing me a song?
